A Discussion About Beauty
Beauty is frequently defined as a subjective trait of certain objects, which makes these objects appealing to notice. These objects could be landscapes, sunsets, beautiful humans and creative works of art. Beauty, along with beauty, is the most important topic of aesthetics, another of the three major branches of modern philosophy.
We can see that there are two types of aesthetic evaluation, the subjective and the objective. The subjective aspect consists of the judgments people make about beauty and the subjective judgments which they hold about other matters. Objective judgment refers to the judgments which we ourselves make about beauty. Beauty and ugliness are not the only criteria for judging beauty; other considerations like culture, race and other notions of artistic merit also enter the picture.
Some people feel that beauty is something independent of personal taste. On the other hand, many others think that beauty is only a matter of degree. Still others believe that beauty is a power inherent in all things and that it may be measured and evaluated in various ways, both quantitative and qualitative. When we speak of beauty, therefore, we do not intend to define it with a particular reference point, whether it is the attractiveness of faces or of other objects. Rather, beauty is seen as a subjective concept, a value judgment that depends on the observer’s personal experience and his or her attitude to beauty.
