Beauty is commonly defined as the aesthetic quality of certain objects which makes these objects pleasant to see. These objects may include sunsets, landscapes, beautiful humans and artistic works of art. Beauty, along with beauty, is the most important subject of art, among the major branches of humanities philosophy. This article will discuss beauty as it relates to objects.
The subject of aesthetics is vast, and each person can choose an appropriate theory on beauty, based on their personal preferences. In general, aesthetic theories are categorized into three: the structuralist view, the humanism view and the objectivist view. Structuralist aesthetics attempts to define beauty through the understanding of cultural systems. Humans, in general, share a common aesthetic experience; this aesthetic experience, according to the structuralist, can be understood by understanding the different kinds of cultures represented by humans. Humans, as a culture, are thought to share a number of fundamental qualities, which allow them to experience beauty through art.
According to the humanist view, beauty is subjective, and dependent on the person’s culture, nationality, race, sex and other essential factors. Humans are considered to be inherently beautiful, and all people are aesthetically conscious to some degree. Culture, as a whole, does not contribute to the understanding of beauty. Aesthetic theories, on the other hand, consider that human beauty is determined through the influence of culture on objects, and the human being itself. Cultural theories concerning beauty also consider man as part of a natural system, and man’s place in the natural world.
On the other hand, objectivist theories concerning beauty explain beauty as an objective reality. It does not depend on the culture of its creator, and the human being cannot be defined as beautiful in the same way as objects are. Beauty is a quality of objects, and not a property of a culture. Beauty exists independent of any person or culture. Beauty can be perceived, and has a physical reality.
The idea of beauty encompasses much more than merely the physical aspect of a person. The visual sense incorporates many other aspects of our lives. It is a comprehensive way of looking at the world, including our experience of time and space. It is a way of knowing and understanding the universe. The visual sense is a logical extension of the understanding of that there are patterns and systems that repeat themselves in the world.
The physical aspects of beauty include form, color, light, material, and space. The visual sense perceives these components of beauty in the world around us, in the totality of reality. Beauty encompasses these aspects of beauty, and they are real in the sense that their presence is felt, and can be measured. Beauty is not abstract, a mental state, nor a subjective idea. Beauty is part of the reality we live in, and can be observed, measured, and observed in all its aspects, in all cultures and nations.
