Scott and Karl are joined by special guest Thomas Mirus, Director of Podcasts for CatholicCulture.org, to finish their discussion of Jacques Maritain’s Art and Scholasticism.

What does contemplating beautiful art do for the soul? Mirus says that if you have metaphysics going into your art, "It's going to make you aware of what art is leading you to and also where art is coming from."

The trio also talks about how great art causes an emotional response but its object is not to do that. Scott adds, "If you are yanking everyone's emotional chain, you are not exactly creating art."
