Beauty is something most of us experience intensely but struggle to understand reflectively. We glimpse beauty all around us: in nature, art, the human body, and even in the rules of thought and number. But what can we say, if anything, about the character of beauty as such? In this seminar we will seek to understand beauty as the “splendor of form” and its properties of integrity, proportion, and simplicity. We will also discuss how beauty might guide us into a deeper knowledge of love, nature, and revelation. This seminar will be co-taught by Matthew Rose.
