dc.description.abstractSartre’s theory of existential aesthetics implies that the production of art for the sake of social change is a superior project to the production of art for art’s sake. Sartre argues that literature is the prime form of art since it is more capable of revealing a situation to the audience than are other forms of art. I argue that other forms of art, such as painting, composing music, and writing poetry, are equally capable of revealing situations to the audience. I also argue that "art for art’s sake" is capable of contributing to an individual’s existential project.en_US
