Bellezza, The Power of Beauty


How do you know when something is beautiful? According to Aquinas, beauty is “that which causes delight in the soul”. Yet everyone seems to have different opinions of what beauty is. Does beauty exist? Or is it only in the eye of the beholder, conditioned by culture and individual preferences? Is it superficial and skin-deep? Or does it have a deeper meaning?


Come with us on a journey of reflection on the meaning of beauty. In conjunction with UNIV 2012 in Rome, we invite you to join T. Brian Mooney, an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Singapore Management University, and our young university presenters in exploring the different facets of beauty.

The Family Enrichment Society (FES) was founded in 1998 by a group of concerned parents who share the common goal of enhancing the state of society by educating the society’s core unit which is the family. FES is a non-profit, private initiative that has been officially registered with the Registry of Societies on 3 April 1998 (with Registration No. ROS309/97 WEL).


Our mission statement is “to promote family values and the harmonious development of the relationship between the spouses and among parents, children and other components of the family unit.”
