[ Art-Aesthetic] ["The aesthetic realm always furnishes the most sensitive barometer of a spiritual climate. Art indicates what the character of a spiritual situation is; it does this more immediately and directly than do science or philosophy...Science is of greater importance in the formation of a spiritual situation, but art is the more important for its apprehension."] [Paul Tillich, "The Religious Situation," p{age} 53-4]
