Progressive Aesthetics

Art can …evoke reverence for the dignity of every [person] and for the life of every animal, can make [people] ashamed of luxury, of violence, of revenge, or of using for their pleasure that of which others are in need; can compel people freely, gladly, and without even noticing it, to sacrifice themselves in the service of [others]. The task of art … is to make that feeling of…love of one’s neighbour … the customary feeling and the instinct of all [people].

– Leo Tolstoy, What is Art?
