|Abstract||„Is beauty a pure perfection?“ What is the real nature beauty? This is for everyone a very important question, because there seems to be a deep interrelation between beauty and love. Is beauty merely subjectively important, or is beauty important itself ? Is it possible to love authentically “something” merely subjectively important? We distinguish certain kinds of beauty and argue that beauty has an objective nature, is important itself and is therefore an objective value. So we have to “answer” to beauty with an adequate value response. Furthermore we should notice that beauty is in some respect objectively related to other “things”. This is for example expressed in the “old trinity of Truth and Good and Beauty”. If we “see” the objective nature of beauty more precisely, we might be able to understand better Dostoyevsky’s sentence: “Beauty will save the world”.|
