    This generation believes that beauty is based on how you look, and how you dress. Beauty is more than that, it comes from the inside. Beauty is a combination of physical, social, and mental aspects. It can be one of the most complex aspects of life. Many people argue about appearance and the physical aspects that make up beauty, but in reality there is no true definition of beauty, because beauty is different for everyone. To help support this claim, I will be citing from authors Rosen, Koggel, Montez, and Hickerson.…

    Regardless, people may argue that the meaning of beauty is ingrained in us biologically. What we find “naturally attractive” helps us define who an ideal mate would be. But now that the survival of our race doesn’t depend on our reproduction, we can redefine the definition of beauty to suit our psychological needs. People have ruined their health and taken unnecessary risks, since they’re willing to do whatever it takes to be “beautiful.”…

    The justifications to which my inclination can be ascribed are manifold. Probably the first springing to my mind is that intelligence can render a whole definition to procurement of one’s beauty. Nowadays, the mass media colours every aspect of people’s lives, especially to their aesthetic. A raft of celebrated movies and soup operas vividly depict the gender stereotype, in which people consider that women should have an ideal body shape and charming appearance, “Ugly Betty”, “200 Pounds Beauty” , to name but a few. This in turn inculcates susceptible people’s value towards the importance of superficial beauty. Intelligence, in fact, plays a significant role in people’s life. Lamentably, seldom do people realize that the beauty can be one’s intelligence, which is the long-lasting and invincible asset for human beings. Mulan, a prominent Disney animated movie which portrays the story of a legendary Chinese heroine with ordinary appearance, has received high acclaims and gained growing popularity across the…

    A very different view of beauty came from Immanuel Kant, an 18th century German philosopher whose work sparked changes in many fields including aesthetics. He holds our mental faculty of reason in high regard and believes that it is our reason that fills the world we experience with structure. He argues that it is our capability of judgment enables us to have experience of beauty and grasp those experiences as part of an ordered, natural world with purpose. (Douglas…

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but sometimes it is in the eye of the culture. When it comes to beauty, what is accepted as beauty socially is often very different from what is accepted in different cultures. According to the textbook, defining culture as a separate thing from society often breeds cultural stereotypes, because there are no definitive ways to pinpoint cultural behavior to any one set of people. Nevertheless, there are noticeable distinctions, though not definitive; when discussing what is beautiful sometimes produces controversy, as evidenced in an article recently published and removed from the website in Psychology Today entitled “Why are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?” Historically, a well-rounded, female body was a symbol of health, wealth, and fertility. In today’s society, a slim, petite woman, is often the feminine idea of beauty, however, some cultures still prefer a more curvaceous silhouette.…

    The common physical beauty is what Elaine Scarry called “a symmetry of everyone’s relation to one another” in her book called On Beauty and Being Just (1999). This means that beautiful subjects or objects are evenly proportioned and ideal in all their forms. In other words, if symmetry is perfection, then beauty is perfection too. At the same time, as absolute symmetry does not exist- beauty is a divine feature of “chosen”. Meanwhile, I have my own interpretation of physical beauty. This is the idea of beauty that is not just a physical appearance of a person or object. This is the universal “beauty” I was talking about in the introduction of the paper. In my opinion, physical beauty that relates to the beauty of objects or subjects…

    When you look in the mirror, do you see “beautiful”? Did you know that there’s a kind of beauty that isn’t tangible? Beauty is more than one might think; it is more rare. Those who have seen it know it to be something that cannot be captured by a photograph, it must be told by a story. If it has not been clear yet, beauty is not by any means physical aesthetics, but rather it is the actions that make-up an appealing disposition. Through the centuries, so many have wrongly credited beauty to be a person’s looks. The inevitable problem with that kind of beauty is the ever changing idea of what it is, and how it fails to express true beauty.…
