Can a good work of art be evil? Berys Gaut argues that artworks are always aesthetically flawed if they have a moral defect that is aesthetically relevant. He shows how moral goodness is a kind of beauty, that artworks can teach us about morality, and that it is right for emotional responses to artworks to be guided in part by moral considerations.
