Anne Eaton “Painting and Ethics” originally published in 2004 “Anne Eaton is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her areas of research are value theory, philosophy of art, feminism, and ethics. Among the topics of interest to her are representations of rape. She is currently working on a project that investigates the intersection of ethics with the visual arts and its implications for museum practices and public policy. She received her Ph.D. in both philosophy and art history from the University of Chicago.” She is currently a Fellow at Princeton University. I think she has moved from University of Illinois to Bucknell. 1. There are several ways in which paintings can be valuable: economically, historically, and simply as works of art. 2. What is this last value and how is it related to other kinds of value? 3. Can a painting be worse artistically because it is ethically flawed, or better for its ethical merits? 4. Can a painting be the object of ethical judgment at all? After all, paintings are inanimate objects, like toasters. 5.
