Arts Education, Human Development, and the Quality of Experience


by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi & Ulrich Schiefele 1992

It was our intention to show that the two domains complement each other, by fostering cognizance of different dimensions of reality. Our analysis suggests that creating, responding to, or learning about art have more relevance for people's everyday life experience and their existential struggles than do the natural and technical sciences.
