Can The Beauty (as almost the most important category in aesthetics) really save our world???Is the Beauty a supreme (highest) rule of the Universe??? Can it be a creative power, which transforms human mind in tendency to more harmonious????
Good luck to everyone
Good question. It's interesting to think of why we value
certain things beautifull and others repugnant, or just dull. Why is semitry apealing? what makes some sounds music and others just noise? I think that if we look closely it will be evident that certain things are beautifull due to our specific biology as human receptors of stimuli. from the range of precievable light and sound to the very way our brains are structured. so beauty may well be IN the eye of the beholder. Change the receptor and it affects the subjective experience. Maybe that's why dogs don't appreciate the harmonica.
Harmony is beautfull. Beauty is relative by nature, and it seems humans have a hard time agreeing on beauty. Cultural differences influence peoples ideas of beauty. I value diverse cultures for that very reason. Food, music, art, literature, even religion has cultural value prefferances rooted in beauty. It would be a bland predictable world if we all valued the very same things, but when we open our minds (transform) to what others value it is always a unifying experience.
As far as beauty saving the world it hasn't been shown that the world needs saving, or do you mean the world as we know it. Lets say we humans unleash nuclear war and anialate most
of the life on the planet; whatever survived would go on, and beuty would go on, but beuty would then be in thier
