The origin of beauty

Posted:

Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote that “The world will be saved by beauty,” which leads us to ask two rhetorical questions: first, does this mean that the world is lost and, second, is ugliness to blame for its condition? Rhetorical questions require no answer, but what we can see for ourselves is that in their multiple forms — artistic, personal and moral — beauty and ugliness contend for cultural supremacy. Today the general consensus among humanistic thinkers is that a “cult of ugliness” prevails.
