What good are the arts ?

I note an interesting debate on Radio 3’s Night Waves on the history of understandings of what the arts are capable of achieving; a debate that can’t entirely avoid the religious nature of that claim until at least the nineteenth century, and arguably beyond. Participants included John Carey, Edith Hall and Jude Kelly. It’s available on the iPlayer service.
