    And thus it is quintessentially beautiful.

    The subjective analogues that detract/unify are wonderfully-controversial examples supporting this end.

    I had a brief debate with Owl, with whose views I'm generally sympathetic, about the existence of essences (I don't buy into essences)... I don't think anything can be essentially beautiful... though you're ascribing beauty, at the same time, to intersubjectivity... so... 'essentially'... I could say the same for a steaming pile of turd.

    But, I get what you're saying, Night... it makes me very uncomfortable.

    Intersubjectivity should probably caveat the Webster's entry for beauty.

    Oy, intellectualized constructs/ideals of beauty are highly subjective.

    Aesthetic standards/ideals of beauty, however, are far more universally regarded and hence, objectively observed/understood.

    Radioactive syringe.

    Aren't aesthetic standards simply intellectualized constructs?

    No.

    We are biologically inclined to find certain things innately beautiful, for various evolutionary-based reasons.
