Dietrich von Hildebrand understood the centrality of good looks now not only to artwork yet to philosophy, theology, and ethics. In his formidable and finished Aesthetics, now translated into English for the 1st time, Hildebrand rehabilitates the idea that of attractiveness as an goal fairly and merely 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 finally the divine.

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