Description

D’Olimpio offers a deep investigation into the role and value of aesthetic education introducing the reader to multiple defenses for its value in the K-12 curriculum including those made by Elliot Eisner and Maxine Greene. She successfully argues that the intrinsic value of the aesthetic experience is fundamental to the well-being and overall education of students and that including aesthetic education into the curriculum does not require any further extrinsic reasons.

D’Olimpio offers a deep investigation into the role and value of aesthetic education introducing the reader to multiple defenses for its value in the K-12 curriculum including those made by Elliot Eisner and Maxine Greene.

Advocates of arts education tend to speak in platitudes. This book moves firmly beyond the platitudes by providing a rigorous defence of the necessity of aesthetic education in terms of both its intrinsic value and extrinsic benefits. Written with gusto and persuasion, this work serves both as a formidable philosophical treatise and an inspired manifesto. I particularly recommend Chapter 7 on the complex relationship between aesthetics and ethics. A delightful read.

Laura D’Olimpio is Associate Professor of Philosophy of Education at the University of Birmingham, UK, and author of Media and Moral Education: a philosophy of critical engagement (2018). She is co-editor of Educating Character Through the Arts (2023) and co-editor of the Journal of Philosophy in Schools.
