By Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka

Beauty fulfils human lifestyles. because it registers in our aesthetic event, good looks complements nature s attraction round us and our inward event lifting our soul towards ethical elevation. Carried via artistic mind's eye (Imaginatio Creatrix), attractiveness participates within the moulding of the types of the intellective structure of the brain in tandem with praxis and seeks deeper enigmas of the true within the labyrinth of the cosmos. but with the evolution of human improvement and in technological innovations, attractiveness, whereas suffusing all modalities of expertise, turns out to suffer alterations and growth. Are there perduring norms and modalities of attractiveness or are we carried alongside blindly through human improvement? Is there a degree intrinsic to our human ontopoietic unfolding and the expansion of human existence that we may possibly keep on with rather than the whim of fancy and excess?

The current number of art-explorations seeks the fundamental ties of Human situation. jointly, the authors goal to reply to the questions posed above.

Example text

This experience jars the soul; the person becomes afflicted and reacts physically as well as emotionally. ”10 The engagement with the beautiful in this speech is an erotic one, erotic in that it is fueled by a desire of the speaker for the young boy, but erotic also because the experience of the speaker in the presence of the beautiful boy initiates a kind of madness in which the speaker is both overcome and passes beyond individuation and at the same time is decisively present. It is through this erotic engagement of beauty that the speaker remembers what his soul has forgotten.

In the very first line Socrates asks, “My friend Phaedrus! ”2 Socrates here is not just making pleasantries with Phaedrus but asks after Phaedrus’ identity. He asks after Phaedrus’ sense of self: Who are you, where have you been, and where will you go qua Phaedrus? Socrates brings Phaedrus’ contingent being forward to Phaedrus as an issue of concern, in the realm outside everydayness. In the very first part of the dialogue we learn that Phaedrus has left the city walls to practice memorizing and reciting a speech by the famous Lysias.

His speech, like Lysias’ before him, was directed to a young boy and attempted to convince that boy that he ought to give pleasure not to the one who loves him but to his non-lover. His sin consists in speaking slanderously against a god, in this case love (Eros). To rectify his wrongdoing, Socrates composes a second speech; it is to this speech that I now turn. THE BEAUTIFUL RECOLLECTED 17 Socrates begins the speech by articulating three kinds of madness, the third being most relevant to the content of his speech and the experience of the beautiful itself.
