Beauty is often defined as a subjective aspect of things that makes these objects appealing to the senses. Such objects include sunsets, landscapes, beautiful humans and other works of art. Beauty, along with beauty, is perhaps the most important theme of aesthetics, another of the major fields of psychology. In aesthetic psychology, beauty is considered to be a natural and human characteristic, and that it is universal.
In the history of Western philosophy, the idea that beauty can be found in the aesthetic experience reached its apotheosis in the works of Sartre, Le Figuer and Malebranche. In their ideas, beauty is defined as the acceptance of others as something beautiful, and an unconscious enjoyment of the objects of others. According to the theories of modern aesthetics, beauty is determined by human perception, and the interpretation of beauty within the given circumstances. These theories of aesthetics are called theories of esthetics. While some of these theories are still widely accepted in the art world, others are considered theory in the artistic sense.
The most accepted theories in the field of aesthetics are those that consider beauty to be a natural and essential characteristic of the world. According to these theories, beauty is the result of a connection between how something is made, and the way it makes the person who sees it feel. For example, the idea that color is the essence of beauty is a popular one, according to which all colors have their own properties and independent meanings. A more recent theory on the meaning of color is that the only true meaning of color is what the eye perceives when seeing it. This idea is called contingency theory, according to which the meaning of color is determined only by the eyesight of a person. A more specific view on beauty is that the only essential characteristic of beauty is its ability to delight the aesthetic senses.
In order to answer the question as to whether beauty is an essential and natural characteristic, it is necessary for us to be able to measure beauty. An absolute definition of beauty is not possible; instead, beauty can only be measured against certain ideal qualities, like clarity and calmness, or height and longevity, among other things. We can, however, use the following list to give some examples of what we mean when we speak of beauty, to help our understanding: the ability to be beautiful, the quality of looking beautiful, the pleasure received from looking beautiful, and the enjoyment one gets from being beautiful.
One example of beauty used by artists to demonstrate the power of the human face to influence the mood of those around is Rubens’s “Fountain of youth”. This is one of Rubens’ paintings, and the description he gives of it is quite telling: he shows a beautiful woman lying on a large bed, with her legs bare, and the world around her looking as still and calm as the water of the fountain she is standing in. From this description, and from the look on the woman’s face, it is clear that Rubens thinks of his painting as conveying the beauty of youthful innocence lost as we age, and also of youth lost through the familiarity of daily wear.
This is not to say that every face needs a brush, or that hair has no value in conveying beauty. It is simply to show that even the most mundane things can be made to be more beautiful than they otherwise would be by just changing the medium. And perhaps the most convincing argument for the value of hair to beauty, is that it can, in fact, be made to be beautiful!
