Beauty – A Social Experience

Beauty is often defined as a particular aspect of objects which makes these objects enjoyable to see. These objects can include sunsets, landscapes, beautiful humans and artistic works of art. Beauty, along with beauty, is perhaps the most important subject of aesthetics, another of the three major branches of modern, contemporary philosophy. The other two branches of modern/contemporary philosophy are science and religion. In fact, the word ‘deism’ refers to the belief that beauty and the object of beauty are independent of religious, spiritual and emotional factors.


Art, beauty and aesthetics are closely connected, however. Modern art is often an expression of aesthetic pleasure and there is a great deal of discussion among artists as to whether or not certain forms of art are socially valuable or not. Many people believe that beauty is subjective while others think that it is a fixed, universal quality. For example, the debate about the definition of beauty has been ongoing for many years between those who believe that beauty is entirely subjective and those who think that beauty is a social construct, regardless of whether or not it is a subjective or a given quality. However, many artists and critics do not consider beauty to be anything other than a subjective experience that can be affected by the surrounding environment and individual experiences in society.

For this reason, beauty can vary from person to person and one’s aesthetic sense may differ from another. We all share a certain degree of beauty, no matter our culture and class. If you feel ugly then beauty is only an aesthetic quality that you can enhance through makeup and clothes. However, if you feel beautiful then beauty is a subjective quality that can only be enhanced through social media, movies, music, art and makeup.
