Dietrich von Hildebrand understood the centrality of attractiveness now not purely to paintings yet to philosophy, theology, and ethics. In his bold and accomplished Aesthetics, now translated into English for the 1st time, Hildebrand rehabilitates the concept that of good looks as an aim fairly and basically subjective phenomenon. His systematic account renews the Classical and Christian imaginative and prescient of attractiveness as a competent mode of notion that leads humanity towards the real, the great, and eventually the divine.

There is not any extra very important factor in our culture--sacred or secular--than the recovery of good looks. and there's no larger position to begin this pressing company than Dietrich von Hildebrand's Aesthetics. - Dana Gioia | From the Foreword
