Boring beauty and universal morality: Kant on the ideal of beauty

Inquiry 48 (2):107 – 130 (2005)
Abstract
This paper argues that Kant's account of the "ideal of beauty" in paragraph 17 of the Critique of Judgment is not only a plausible account of one kind of beauty ("boring" beauty), but also that it can address some of our moral qualms concerning the aesthetic evaluation of persons, including our psychological propensity to take a person's beauty to represent her moral character.
