Truth, beauty and goodness

Thu 26 Oct 2017

But even in a self-assuredly beautiful city such as Sydney, when it comes to defining beauty, unlike truth and goodness, beauty may seem to slip through our fingers. However, that should not surprise us. The history of the idea of beauty in the Western world means that we have lost a vision of the beautiful.
