Beauty Is Subjective

Good Essays
LITERATURE REVIEWS

have been finding ou I t more and more as I grow older, that people have different views about everything. Nothing in this world is perfect and it shows through mans disagreement about everything. They all have their own definiton of beauty. I find it is good to have your own opinion about things. Then you can hear other opinions and still have your own.
Beauty could be defined as an outward apperience.According to William Shakespeare(1588) “Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye”. A lot of people cave into beauty as being a thing they look at. Beauty is something that brings their eyes happiness like Stendhal(1871)said, “Beauty is the promise of happiness”. They lust after someone because of the pleasure they see out of the situation. They might not know it but they are looking at if you have straight teeth, a "normal" size nose, how defined your cheeks are, how sharp your chin is, how much you weigh, how fit you are, the shape of your body, and a lot more. To me, I feel this is the wrong way to think. I might on occasion do this but it is not right judging people like that. God made everyone equal and they should all be treated equal. It is often said that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and this goes to prove that beauty is highly subjective. We all obviously have different tastes. What appears beautiful to one person may seem ugly or not so beautiful to another. It is the person who is looking (the beholder) who has to form his or her own opinion whether a particular person, place or object is beautiful. Many literary researchers believe that Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (née Hamilton), who wrote prolifically under the pseudonym 'The Duchess' was the first person ever to write "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". In her book Molly Bawn written in 1878, the line "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” appears for the first time in print. According to David Hume(1977), the erudite philosopher writes in his

    Subjective Judgment Judgment is not something certain but rather a reflection of one’s own personal beliefs, in other words it is subjective opinion of something. Therefore, the statement “good judgment” is in fact an oxymoron, for in order for someone to claim that it is good he must judge it. Good judgment varies from person to person based on what he/she believes to be “good.” Nonetheless, good judgment is generally used to describe an action that is beneficial to oneself and this is why often…

    Thinking about the subjective nature of language, communication reflects cultural values and perspectives. It also creates or reproduces culture by naming and normalizing practices valued by the culture. We develop an appreciation for how people of different generations and cultures have viewed each of these different words and their meanings. Some women may find the term “chick” offensive and prefer to be called a lady. I would assume police officers found the term “pig” to be offensive…

His composition is so compelling and powerful it challenges our most basic notions of war as heroic and noble, and unmasks…
