Pre-Raphaelite – Pre-Socratic Theories About Beauty
Beauty is commonly defined as the aesthetic quality of objects which makes these objects enjoyable to see. These objects may be sounds, colors, shapes, animals, or anything else. Beauty, along with beauty and art, is perhaps the most significant part of aesthetics, among the various branches of science. Aesthetics majors teach students how to study beauty, how to appreciate it, and how to use it as a motivating principle in their own lives.
Beauty is subjective, as is almost everything in the world. We all have different perspectives on beauty, which often leads to disagreement about what beauty actually is. Subjective theories on beauty include: the belief that beauty is a purely subjective quality, the belief that beauty is determined by the physical qualities of a person or object, and the belief that beauty is the product of the brain. According to the last theory, beauty is the product of the brain because the brain determines what is beautiful through the five senses. The physical attributes of a person, however, do not determine what beauty is.
Most of us have strong opinions about beauty. Most of us, for instance, believe that beauty is beauty, and that there is no other essential characteristic of things except that they are beautiful. According to this line of thinking, beauty must be defined as the absence of disease, death, sorrow, pain, and misery. A purely subjective view of beauty might seem to contradict the above-mentioned ideas, since the former seems to imply that beauty is something subjective while the latter suggests that beauty is something objective. Beauty, however, can also be considered a purely subjective aspect of a greater underlying objective.
Aesthetic judgement has a great deal to do with the aesthetic quality of an object. Beauty, for instance, can be considered an essential characteristic of all objects but only certain objects can qualify as beauty for a particular individual. An object that satisfies all the requirements of beauty for an object can be considered to be a beauty, but only an object satisfying one or more of these requirements can be considered to be beauty in totality. An object that satisfies all the conditions of beauty for an individual can be considered to be a beauty, but an object satisfying one or more of these conditions can only be considered to be a beauty if it satisfies the other conditions of beauty for the beholder. It therefore follows that the beauty that we see in the world depends on the aesthetic judgement of each and every beholder.
According to the two theories mentioned above, beauty lies in the beholder, and beauty exists independently of the aesthetic judgement of any one person. The aestheticians, on the one hand, deny that beauty is something independent of and independent from the aesthetic judgement of any one person and they maintain that beauty is a product of the mind of the beholder. According to the other, beauty is only a product of the mind of the aestheticism. These theories about beauty have important philosophical as well as practical consequences.
The physical appearance of humans is a product of their psychological constitution-whether they are inclined toward animals or humanness, or whether they are homo sapiens or homo sempitern. According to the psychological character-expressionist theory, the most important preoccupation of our being is our inner beauty; the physical appearance of humans being only a secondary matter. According to the other, the most important preoccupation of our being is our outer physical appearance; the physical appearance of humans being only a secondary matter.
