Lyndon and Helga LaRouche have made groundbreaking contributions to the understanding of Art and aesthetics, from the standpoint of the role they play in the overall progress of mankind. We provide here a number of links to websites associated with the LaRouches, so that our visitors can locate essays that bear on these questions.

Politics as Art , an essay by Lyndon LaRouche, a man who was able to conceptualize art, science, and politics, all from the standpoint of what Schiller called Universal History.

The Substance of Morality, an earlier essay:

"Thus, when we sing with Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, and so on, we are expressing the essence of that playful domain in which the ontological essence of all art, and all morality, are supplied the ontological medium best suited to their expression. On this account, all great Classical music is, in its own way, sacred music, the soul's yearning toward its rightful, beautiful place in the simultaneity of eternity, as Bach's great student, Ludwig van Beethoven, best understood this."

The Cult of Ugliness, or Beauty as a Necessary Condition for Mankind,, a presentation given in 2001 by Helga Zepp-LaRouche to an American conference of the Schiller Institute, the organization she founded.

Toward a New Renaissance in Classical Education, a speech given by Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche on Feb. 7, 1998, at the symposium on "Creating Excellence in Education Through Music" in Washington, D.C.
