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.
