Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts/by JACQUES MARITAIN/In this volume Jacques Maritain proposes to make/both the distinction and the indissoluble rela-/tionship between art and poetry. He insists on the/part played by the intellect in both art and poetry,/and especially on the fact that poetry has its source/in the intuitve activity of the internet./In the process of illuminating his argument, Pro-/fessor Maritain discusses the poetry of Eliot and/Thomas, the painting of Roualt and Picasso, the/music of Bach and Mozart, the philosophy of Plato,/Aristotle, and St. Thomas Aquainus./"(Jacques Maritain) is the most powerful force in/contemporary French philosophy."
