We all know about the less spoken branch of philosophy, aesthetics. So what are some people's opinion concerning that subject? Discuss I tell you, DISCUSS!

For the longest time, I associated beauty with truth.

Thankfully that association finally broke apart on thursday.
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

"The law is there to destroy evil under the constitutional government."
So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

The reasons, I am not going to reveal here.

You're right, beauty does not equal truth and vice versa.

I think you should reveal your own reasoning. I'm curious.

Also, what's your view on aesthetics, then?

Aesthetics is the tool by which we understand and experience everything!

Some few of "us" are a bit less vane.

Some of what others might describe as very charming, handsome or beautiful people in my life have proven to have ugly souls.

Some others might describe as plain- or ordinary-looking, or even undesireable I have found to have the most beautiful souls.

Aesthetics? I agree with Rand on this one: It's the selective re-creation of reality in accordance with the artist's metaphysical value judgments. In other words, how the artist perceives the complex world is personal, and they should portray their reality and/or our collective reality through art, by depicting what is interesting and important to them, and by the subconscious value judgments that their particular feeling grows out of and embodies. Indeed art and aesthetics are very important :)
