WEEK 5 & 6

The power of beauty

Dates: 21 September - 6 December Where: 11 Mandeville Place, W1U 3AJ

What we’ll cover in this session

What is beauty?

Is there such a thing as absolute beauty?

Beauty has the capacity to open the heart and bring delight. In this session we discuss our direct experience of beauty in its different form: of the sensory world, of thought, of feelings, of the inner nature, and of conduct.

We consider Plato’s idea of there being ultimately one beauty – beauty absolute – ‘not knowing birth or death, growth or decay’.
