What is Beauty?

I found this Catholic Answers thread entertaining.

My favorite responses:
is the pic on black velvet? that makes a huge difference. only pix of dogs playing poker or Elvis should be on black velvet.

This is about thomistic and Aristotlean Asthetics. Maybe Teleology.

You might read this article on the philosophical concept of aesthetics.

There is no real dispute that, if black velvet, then dogs playing poker or Elvis.

But the argument rages on whether, if dogs playing poker or Elvis, then black velvet. The commemorative platists can get downright nasty on this question.

High-laire. I might have to write this in form of Aquinas argument: "Whether Elvis (the fat version) is better rendered on commemorative plate."
