What’s the use of beauty?

What is beauty and why are we so attracted to it? Some agree that beauty is a value as important as truth and goodness.

2000 years ago, Plato said: “Beholding beauty with the eye of the mind you will be able to nourish true virtues and become friend with God. ….One way of experiencing God is through beauty.”

Here below you can enjoy a documentary on “Why beauty matters” made by Roger Scruton, philosopher and writer.
