Academic Journal
The article presents reflections on the future of culture and aesthetic education. According to the author, one basic question about the matter is whether the present and the imaginable future provide any signs of renewal that hold potential for pulling contemporary culture out of its depression. Recognizing that trends and opinions are subject to dramatic change, the author notes that little in the contemporary situation that suggests artists are geared toward anything like cultural regeneration. Related literatures that attest and forecast the developments of arts and culture are mentioned.
