The Science Behind Beauty

Beauty as inspiration

With Inspiration as our theme for the month (read more on that here), what could be more fitting than focusing on beauty? Have you ever considered that as human beings, we actually need beauty to survive?

We need beauty.

Let’s take a closer look at beauty, get inspired by beauty, and invite you to think deeply about the value surrounding beauty and what beauty means to you. Is beauty as essential as air, food, and love? Many argue and agree beauty IS essential.

Beauty motivates us.

Psychologist Nancy Etcoff states, “Do we need beauty to survive? Experiences of awe and pleasure and a sense of aspiration at what might be perfect in the world… beauty draws us in. [Beauty] takes us outside of ourselves and it motivates us and so I believe it is essential to life and happiness.” Have you ever turned to art and beauty to help inspire you? We are inspired by beauty, moved by beauty, and we create beauty! But what exactly IS beauty?

Beauty is art

Beauty may not only be a picture, a landscape, but also a feeling. Beauty is admired, appreciated, and felt. Beauty is art, music, dance, visual displays of human emotion and creativity. We react to things when they’re beautiful, but sometimes that’s not always for reasons you may think. We may react because of deep emotional experiences. Going further, sometimes we don’t always understand what is beautiful until we learn the story behind it. Beauty is understanding, beauty is relational, beauty is empathy and compassion.

Beauty is skill

Dennis Dutton argues that because of our ancestors, we value something done well. It’s the intelligent skills that are handed down that we value; skills that support our rich, emotional lives. Whether it’s a pleasing vision of nature or a skill that helps us advance in our lives, we all deeply value artistry, the science behind an invention or idea, something to improve the lives of others; all these things are considered beautiful.

Beauty is advancement

Beauty is enormously complex. It can connect us, motivate us, unite us, and inspire us. Isn’t that what life is all about? Bill Strickland, CEO of Manchester Bidwell Corporation says, “When I think of beauty, I think of life and hope and all of its enormous possibilities. Beauty is not just for the imagination. It actually is a way of alerting human behavior for the better.”
