Beauty: A Very Short Introduction
Oxford University Press 2010
Beauty can be consoling, disturbing, sacred, profane; it can be exhilarating, appealing, inspiring, chilling.
It can affect us in an unlimited variety of ways. Yet it is never viewed with indifference. In this Very Short Introduction the renowned philosopher Roger Scruton explores the concept of beauty, asking what makes an object - either in art, in nature, or the human form - beautiful, and examining how we can compare differing judgements of beauty when it is evident all around us that our tastes vary so widely.
