Aesthetic Studies in Education and Literature

In the ancient Greek education  there was a focus on art education such as musical education and drama education. This primary art education is the rudiment of aesthetic education. It aims at leading students to be self-regulated and be able to get rid of all faults. Plato believes that students would get the habit to love the beautiful thing and integrate it with their mind unknowingly and prevent  the influence from the evil, the debauchery, the contemptibility, and the obscenity. Plato thinks that the best education is music education, for music is to look for the beauty and the good in heart and the person with good music education is smart to find out which the ugly is and which the beautiful is.
