ABSTRACT
The article presents an informed analysis and evaluation of values in the fine arts. According to the author, the tendency to ignore questions of values in the fine arts and related tendency to reduce all questions of value to valuation is a serious issue. He stresses that what should artists concerned most is the fact that the objectivity of values is abnegated altogether on the grounds that all value judgment merely reflect the feelings or attitudes of the person who makes judgment. Further, he notes that conflicting value judgments in both ethics and aesthetics are not seen as invitations to engage in dialogue and try to discover the truth of the matter.
