Beauty is often defined as a subjective feature of objects which makes these objects aesthetically pleasing to see. Such objects include sunsets, landscapes, humans and creative works of art. Beauty, along with beauty, is perhaps the most important theme of aesthetics, among the most important branches of psychology. It can be seen in everything from art to architecture.
In psychology, beauty has also been used to explain personality, whereas beauty in the aesthetic sense is used to define the aesthetic qualities of objects. Thus, the definition of beauty varies between different philosophers. Aristotle defines beauty as unity, distinctness and unity. He goes on to say that beauty is defined by a balance of what is handsome or unpleasant. According to some other philosophers, beauty is a value conceived by men and women in proportion to the importance of the object and the situation it occupies.
For beauty conscious people, the definition of beauty varies greatly. On one end of the spectrum there are people who consider themselves to be sexually attractive, while on the other end of the spectrum are those who consider themselves ugly or simply uncomfortable around such individuals. Still another definition of beauty is one that relates beauty to the ability to affect others positively.
According to this school of thought, beauty is the subjective quality of an object, regardless of its cultural or ethnic origins, that causes pleasure or makes pain felt. Beauty is also seen in how people dress, speak and behave, and this definition has also been taken on to include a set of values about what is considered to be beautiful, as beauty in these terms does not depend on physical appearance. According to this school of thought, beauty is therefore subjective and depends largely on the observer.
Many people subscribe to the school of thought that beauty is largely an unconscious trait that is learned during childhood and early adolescence. According to this school of thought, beauty is a way of knowing and understanding oneself and one’s environment. This is particularly relevant in the case of beauty conscious young people, for whom beauty is largely a matter of how they perceive the self and how they relate to others.
According to this school of thought, beauty is not primarily something that can be objectively measured. Beauty, according to them, is an aesthetic sense that arises out of the given circumstances and is not dependent on the eyes of the viewer. In essence, beauty is seen as something to be admired, rather than something to be ashamed of. Aesthetic beauty therefore is a desire that is independent of culture and circumstance. The universal goal of all people, beauty conscious or not, is to be understood, appreciated and be admired.
