Dietrich von Hildebrand understood the centrality of attractiveness no longer simply to artwork yet to philosophy, theology, and ethics. In his formidable and entire Aesthetics, now translated into English for the 1st time, Hildebrand rehabilitates the idea that of attractiveness as an goal particularly and only subjective phenomenon. His systematic account renews the Classical and Christian imaginative and prescient of good looks as a competent mode of conception that leads humanity towards the genuine, the great, and eventually the divine.

There isn't any extra very important factor in our culture--sacred or secular--than the recovery of attractiveness. and there's no greater position to begin this pressing company than Dietrich von Hildebrand's Aesthetics. - Dana Gioia | From the Foreword
