    Description

    Beauty itself cannot be seized or possessed. But it can be known more directly than any other of the ultimate forms, provided that, even while the individual beautiful object or person is being loved, the lover looks beyond them and pays homage to the reality from which their shape is borrowed. The true lover loves intensely, but always symbolically. Strange though this subtle doctrine may seem to a materialistic age, it can be understood at least at a simple level by asking whether the lover of a beautiful person or the owner of a beautiful work of art could ever be said to possess the actual beauty of person or work. For the quality of beauty exists in a different dimension from the living being or matierial object that manifests it, whether or not we choose to think of this other dimension in Plato’s manner as an actual realm of transcendent reality. Beauty is an appearance, a form, a relationship between physical elements, an intangible essence of tangible bodies which may consequently generate in us a distinct way of seeing and responding - distinct, that is, from the normal impulses of desire, acquisition, or use.
