L’éducation artistique a-t-elle des effets moraux?

Philippe Saltel


The French philosopher Jean-Marie Guyau (1854-1888) claims that arts train-ing takes an important part in education and moral development of children. Our point is to analyse this part: is it founded on the relation between natural or aesthetic beauty and moral good? In that case, what about the taste of the public? Could a link between arts and morals be established on an aca-demic practice? Guyau thinks so because of psychological, historical and also analogical reasons, in spite of singular interesting consequences.
