Reason in Art
The Life of ReasonDownloadable Audiobook - 2014 | Unabridged
In Reason in Art, Santayana explores the social and psychological origins of art. He examines its moral and ideal functions, its lapses into tastelessness, and the distinctive character of music, speech, poetry, and prose. The Spanish-born philosopher sees art as part of the broader human context, concluding that art prepares "the world to receive the soul and the soul to master the world."
