Q & A …

… "Being's self-gift to being:" James Matthew Wilson and the Encounter with Beauty - Seminarian CasualSeminarian Casual. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

what makes something intrinsically good – in the sense that it’s not reducible to mere sensation or pleasure? Aristotle says quite explicitly that something good in itself is always done for the sake of beauty. So beauty transcends what is good and true not because it leaves them behind, but because it is what we see when we see truth and goodness realized in being.
