Beauty – A Universal Flair
Beauty is commonly defined as a subjective aspect of aesthetic objects that makes these objects enjoyable to see. These objects include sunsets, nature, humans and art. Beauty, along with art and beauty, is the most significant theme of aesthetics, among the major branches of contemporary philosophy. The word ‘beauty’ comes from the Greek word ‘gift’, which means a thing beautiful or good in the sight of others. It is a subjective concept, and beauty according to some schools of thought, can be objectively measured through a scale of perfectness, where the object’s greatest possible quality is its ability to gratify the senses.
Conceptualizing beauty is a process, and the way we approach beauty varies from person to person. Some people see beauty as something that they can control, and some see it as something that they cannot. For example, some people feel beautiful when walking through the woods, while others feel beautiful in a church or in their house. Many cultures around the world see inner beauty in nature. Therefore, it can be said that beauty surrounds us and it can be measured by our own sense of touch and our ability to differentiate between things that are beautiful and things that are not beautiful.
Beauty is seen on the runway as well, since the runway is a place where many people say they want to look beautiful. Many professional models go on to become actors or actresses, and they use their looks to get themselves known and to make a name for themselves in the industry. A lot of actors choose to work on the same television or film series for many years, since they all have a specific connection to beauty, whether it is from their childhood, family or culture. For instance, Jennifer Aniston, who is one of the most known and respected actresses of our time, has chosen to work on a series called Friends with her best friend and fellow actress Rachel Cook.
