Wimsatt’s careful account of the matter leaves us with a dilemma: either literature is an essentially amoral art, which must be curbed and shaped by external moral norms; or morality is essentially relative, generated by the arbitrary impulses of the imagination with no basis in.

Literature and Morality There are two schools of thought holding opposite views about Literature or Art in general. The view of the moralists, philosophers and Puritans is that the writer does, and inevitably does, influence the lives and character of his readers; and therefore he should try to.

Literature and Moral Theory investigates how literature, in the past 30 years, has been used as a means for transforming the Anglo-American moral philosophical landscape, which until recently was dominated by certain ways of “doing theory”.

It illuminates the unity of the overall agenda of the ethics/literature discussion in Anglo-American moral philosophy today, the affinities and. Ethics, Literature, and Theory: An Introductory Reader brings together the work of contemporary scholars, teachers, and writers into lively discussion on the moral role of literature and the.

This article looks at the influence of literature on morality. The idea that art or literature has or can have something to do with morality is an old and enduring idea, but today this idea appears in at least two continuing discussions.

These discussions revolve around the questions of whether acquaintance with works of art can have a moral effect upon an audience and whether the moral.

The ethical importance then of literature and fictional story-telling – in the form of novels, comics, even video games, films and television –.

The promotion of moral education in the classroom can occur in a variety of ways. Role-playing and the use of children's literature are two ways educators can promote character education (Edgington, ). Picture books and children's literature have been used over many years to.

So, to sum up, I have given an opinion that literature may indeed have a moral purpose when the moral judgment rises naturally from the work of art and is answered by a strong inner conviction in the reader. Morality which is applied cosmetically to catch a particular taste is found in many books, but not in the best books.

Literature as a Moral Guide Throughout the history teaching moral values through stories, poems or literatures has been a very old system of moral education, since the time of Panchtantra, Ali baba or Aesop’s fables.

It was the time when teaching of the stories was presumed in easy way so that we can go through story again and again. Morality, after all, is a slippery slope and nowhere more, perhaps, than in regard to art, to literature, which begins as the expression of a single heart, a single mind.

This book investigates how our appreciation of literary works calls upon and develops our capacity for moral understanding. The book explores a wide range of philosophical questions about the relation of art to morality, and challenges theories which the book regards as incompatible with a humane view of literary art.

With aching hands and bleeding feet We dig and heap, lay stone on stone; We bear the burden and the heat. The questions of moral philosophy are not always best answered by philosophy books, says leading moral philosopher, Jonathan Glover. He explores questions of how we should live and by what values in books spanning across multiple genres.

About the BookThis book, based on the author's PhD thesis, offers a serious look at the exploration of ancient Indian literature Buddhist figurative literature in particular.

Chinese moral books underplayed by most scholars, on the other hand, may be regarded as the end product/ byproduct of the literature. The author has addressed this issue in detail, and has suggested his own explanations. His main areas of research are meta-ethics, moral psychology, moral character, action theory, and philosophy of religion.

He is the author of three books: Moral Character: An Empirical Theory (), Character and Moral Psychology (), and The Character Gap: How Good Are We. (), all published by Oxford University Press.

Blue And Orange Morality / Literature Discussed early in the book, where time is spent discussing the potential moral outlook of Rorschach's creators, especially by Isaac Szpindel, a biologist, and the Gang of Four, who are the different personalities of Susan James and each a sociologist and linguist in their own right.

They're all using. Both morality and ethics loosely have to do with distinguishing the difference between “good and bad” or “right and wrong.” Many people think of morality as something that’s personal and normative, whereas ethics is the standards of “good and bad” distinguished by a certain community or social setting.

Together with the mystery play and the miracle. The big book (and my children use the term advisedly) is William J. Bennett's best-selling tome, The Book of Virtues: A Treasury of Great Moral Stories.

In it, Bennett has collected some tales, poems, and essays to "aid in the time-honored task of the moral education of the young.". The theory that Literature or Art has a moral purpose at present hold the field. Plato and Aristotle both lay emphasis on the moral value of literature.

Sir Philip Sidney argued, that literature can do more to make men finer than the philosopher, in his Apologia for a ."Depictions of old age and death, the inclusion of controversial topics like homosexuality, and the portrayal of characters who face tough moral dilemmas are increasingly common in children's and adolescent literature.

As a result, books for young people are filled with unresolved problems, conflicting value positions, and alternative value.
