Aesthetic GRE Vocabulary Flashcard

/esˈθet.ɪk/ (adj)


artistic, relating to beauty or the study of beauty, gracious, beautiful, tasteful, appealing, pleasing in appearance, appreciation of beauty, visual


Aesthetics is the philosophical study of beauty and taste. It is closely related to the philosophy of art, which is concerned with the nature of art and the concepts in terms of which individual works of art are interpreted and evaluated.

To provide more than a general definition of the subject matter of aesthetics is immensely difficult. Indeed, it could be said that self-definition has been the major task of modern aesthetics. We are acquainted with an interesting and puzzling realm of experience: the realm of the beautiful, the ugly, the sublime, and the elegant; of taste, criticism, and fine art.
