Beauty and Aesthetics

Despite the fact that we have no universal standard of beauty, many people disagree on what is beautiful. For example, different cultures find different things beautiful. One man’s idea of beauty might be completely unattractive to another man. Other people find art more attractive than others. While this is an interesting debate, the debate remains open. In this article, I will discuss the various criteria that people use to determine whether something is beautiful. Read on to learn more about the importance of artistic intention when determining what is aesthetically pleasing.


In Greek mythology, beauty is related to love. The goddess Aphrodite promised Paris the most beautiful woman in the world as reward for winning the Judgment of Paris. This was the first time that a goddess could win a human’s love. Since that time, the enduring myth of beauty has remained a powerful symbol of love. This idea has endured to this day, with artists like Judith Shepard and Anna Wintour creating iconic pieces for the magazine.

Beauty is an expression of both the internal and external qualities of a person. In order to be beautiful, one must feel good about themselves and have confidence in themselves. This is not always easy, though, especially in a society that focuses on physical appearance. Even if a person looks good and is physically attractive, the fact that they struggle to be physically fit can affect the perception of their beauty. This is why it is important to be self-confident.
