Are You More Beautiful Than You Realize?
Beauty is commonly defined as a subjective, aesthetic quality of certain objects which makes these objects appealing to perceive. Such objects may include beautiful sunsets, landscapes, humans and other works of art. Beauty, along with beauty, is perhaps the most important theme of aesthetics, among the major branches of modern philosophy. It is also one of the most discussed and researched topics in schools of architecture, even those who specialize in design. The word beauty, as defined by Webster means “a pleasing or appealing quality or state”. Some other synonyms for beauty include beauty, form, formless, lustre, and beauty.
A major contribution to the definition of beauty is an argument by some seventeenth century French philosophers who believed that beauty was not merely a subjective quality but an objective one. According to this view, beauty consisted of three elements: the form, the function and the emotions or feelings of the beholder. The form is a matter of imagination, while the function is something more concrete and material. The emotion or feeling involved, whether pleasure or pain, determined the quality or nature of that which was seen. A final factor, the evaluation or judgment of beauty, was determined by these three elements. In the modern era, the three elements have largely become less significant, except to note the influence on beauty that the culture and technology have had on the way we see beauty.
One thing that may concern you as you consider being, or want to be, more beautiful than you already are is what you may worry about others noticing your flaws. As humans, we pride ourselves on many things including our physical beauty, but it is important to realize that beauty is something that is timeless and does not change with the passage of time. You may be self-conscious about your wrinkles, but remember that no matter how old you are, they will not turn you into a more mature or wise person. As long as you love yourself, take comfort in the thought that your beauty will always be the same. Nothing will ever be more beautiful than you, for who else but you can measure that?
