An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Taste, and of the Origin of our Ideas of Beauty, etc

An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Taste is an objective and compelling study of the idea of taste and beauty in life and nature. Frances Reynolds fascinates with his examples of beauty and elegance, and his explanation of what humans are drawn to for validation and satisfaction in life. Excerpt: “But, though all truth resolves into one truth, one beauty, one good, as all colors resolve into one light; though the scientifical intellectual colors, classes, or leading principles of science, the physical, the moral, the metaphysical, &c. &c. resolve into intellectual light, beauty, or good; it is, I imagine, the moral truth, that is the characteristic truth of beauty: for, were we to analyze the pleasing emotions we feel at the sight of beauty.”
