Beauty is defined as the characteristic of a thing that, through a sensory experience (perception), produces a sensation of pleasure or a feeling of satisfaction.[1] It comes from manifestations such as form, visual appearance, movement and sound, although it is also associated, to a lesser extent, with tastes and smells. Along these lines, and emphasizing the visual aspect, Thomas Aquinas defines the beautiful as that which pleases the eye (quae visa placet).[2] A difficulty in understanding beauty is due to the fact that it is not always easy to understand.

One difficulty in understanding beauty is due to the fact that it has both objective and subjective aspects: it is seen as a property of things but also as dependent on the emotional response of observers. It has been argued that the subject’s ability necessary to perceive and judge beauty, sometimes referred to as the «sense of taste,» can be trained and that expert verdicts agree in the long run. This would suggest that the standards of validity of beauty judgments are intersubjective, i.e., dependent on a group of judges, rather than completely subjective or completely objective. Conceptions of beauty aim to capture what is essential in all things beautiful. Classical conceptions define beauty in terms of the relationship between the beautiful object as a whole and its parts: the parts must be in the right proportion to each other and thus compose an integrated harmonious whole. Hedonistic conceptions include the relationship to pleasure in the definition of beauty by holding that there is a necessary connection between pleasure and beauty, i.e., that for an object to be beautiful it is necessary for it to cause disinterested pleasure. Other conceptions include defining beautiful objects in terms of their value, a loving attitude toward them, or their function.

Many authors consider that beauty is that which is pleasing to the senses and to the intelligence and therefore causes pleasure, but not everything that causes us pleasure has to be beautiful.

The earliest theory of beauty can be found with the reflections of Greek philosophers from the pre-Socratic period, such as Pythagoras. The Pythagorean school saw a strong connection between mathematics and beauty. In particular, they noted that objects that possess balance are more striking. Classical Greek architecture is based on this view of accuracy and proportion. Modern research also suggests that people whose facial features are balanced and harmonious are more attractive than those whose features are not.

Definition of beauty according to authors

Aren’t they the ones who did everything to get us out of the hospital with the prettiest of overalls? What about the beanie, the booties and so many other little garments they wrapped us in? And not to mention the birthday parties, the entrance to classes, the Sunday move and many other memories where we were always dressed up. Until we grow up, we fend for ourselves and among many other things we start to choose our outfits.

I am a faithful believer that even if you don’t have the good looks that many demand, you should at least have some pepper, you have to season the chicken! (my grandmother would say when she saw someone gelled, jijijijijijijij!)
