"Beauty exists merely in the mind which contemplates things; and each mind perceives a different beauty." -David Hume
From the moment I saw her I was struck by her beauty. Her golden locks shimmered despite the flickering dull lights. Her honey filled eyes caressed my very soul. Oh but what do the great minds have to say about this? Is it really in my hands, do I really get to decide? According to Aristotle beauty is symmetry and order like a perfect mathematical equation. Confucius on the other hand, thought beauty was over appreciated and people should focus more on their virtues. Actually I beg to argue that the beautiful and the good can be connected; Much like Plato’s philosophy that beauty is akin to goodness. This thought has been popular in the past but more recent thinkers disagree with this notion. For example, Leo Tolstoy thought it delusional to associate beauty with goodness. And so the more I think about it I’m realizing the nature of beauty is one of the most fascinating riddles of philosophy! It’s no wonder we’ve discussed this for centuries. And while I don’t have the final answer now what I do know is that, at the end of the shift virtue morphs into beauty, in the eye of the beholder.
