I just look at nature and wonder how perfect it is. It is so beautiful!
Kant is moving toward the idea that beauty is an objective rather than subjective quality, that is, a recognizable property of an object rather than the private taste. Moreover, I may believe that happiness in life is predominantly sought in the enjoyment of beauty, wherever beauty presents itself to our senses and our judgment — the beauty of human forms and gestures, of natural objects and landscapes and of artistic and even scientific creations. The enjoyment of beauty has a peculiar mildly intoxicating quality of feeling. Beauty has no obvious use; nor is there any cultural necessity for it. From religious point of view beauty is an objective reality which we always experience subjectively. True beauty is achieved by consenting to God, who offers us perfect delight. From a mathematical side beauty is the first test: there is no permanent place in the world for ugly mathematics. For Friedrich Schiller beauty is the most perfect reconciliation of the sensual and rational parts of human nature. As for me beauty is a huge complex system of senses. It depends on what we see, feel, smell, hear and taste, even on our six instincts as well. I dare to say that we can say that this is beautiful only when our senses are in harmony or, at least, some of them, because smelly cheese can be pretty delicious and look good, but has very bad smell! Don’t you think so? Don’t you agree that these natural prints are truly beautiful without any editing or retouch?
