Beauty as an End: What the Philosophy of Aesthetics Shows Us About the Human Soul – Jake Scott – Family Session

Family Session

We often hear that beauty is subjective – but does this mean that beauty has no use? This workshop will aim to show that the purpose of beautiful things is not understood in the sense of immediate usefulness, but in a deeply spiritual sense of the need for human beings to beautify their world.

Session Presenter
