Aesthetics (or esthetics) is a branch of philosophy dealing with the
definition of beauty. It is particularly important to the study of the
individual's moral core, which is formed by epigenetics and examples through
his or her lifetime, but has a common human foundation explored in cognitive
science, anthropology and primatology.
This study is well-developed in theology, e.g. "water, greenery, and a
beautiful face" were identified by Muhammad, founder and Prophet of Islam,
as the key things that any person could differentiate from the background.
Since actions or behavior can be said to have beauty beyond sensory appeal,
aesthetics and ethics often overlap to the degree that this impression is
embodied in a moral code or ethical code.
The word aesthetic can be used as a noun meaning 'that which appeals to the
senses.' Someone's aesthetic has a lot to do with their artistic judgement.
For example, an individual who wears flowered clothing, drives a flowered
car, and paints their home with flowers has a particular aesthetic.
Some of the meaning of aesthetic as an adjective can be illuminated by
comparing it to anaesthetic, which is by construction an antonym of
aesthetic. If something is anaesthetic, it tends to dull the senses or cause
sleepiness. In contrast, aesthetic may be thought of as anything that tends
to enliven or invigorate or wake one up.
This illumination is imperfect in that anaesthetic is not an exact antonym
of aesthetic. In common usage, anaesthetic refers to a dulling that is
physical in its focus, while aesthetic is more commonly used to describe a
mental or intellectual awakening or stimulation.
