Neo-classical age and Renaissance philosophers, because of Aristotle, change their ideas into a
more didactic thought and move away from Aristotle about arts function. Horace, in his Ars
Poetics attaches important to arts two function: to delight and to educate. A good work will both
delight and educate. In Renaissance and Neo- classical ages, those two functions were also
required. The topic, delight would be unimportant and flip if it was asserted as the only function
of art and even if it was supreme and slim. Therefore, there were only little people who defend
the idea that art is only delightsome or entertaining. Art was supposed to educate while it was
entertaining.
