Questioning the Social Powers of Art: Toward a Pragmatic Aesthetics.
Jensen, Joli
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v12 n4 p365-79 Dec 1995
Analyzes and critiques the faith in the social powers of the arts which allows American intellectuals to maintain a loyalty to democracy in the abstract while deploring people's concrete cultural practices. Offers John Dewey's belief in "art as experience" as an alternative that can refigure and benefit American social thought. (SR)
