This article explores a wide range of issues dealing with the intersection between ethics and the arts. The article is divided into two major sections: The first concerns those ethical issues and themes that relate to events we would like to avoid, that we believe entail harm, and that are in some respect or to some degree immoral, and the second concerns those ethical issues and themes that we would like to encourage, that promote morality, or that are themselves instances of the morally positive.
