About This Site

Getting The Most From This Site

The focus of this site is the understanding and appreciation of beauty in the natural world, in Western culture, and in other cultures both past and present. Beauty is controversial and our editorial policy is to publish articles from as wide a variety of perspectives as possible as long as we do not think something is frankly rascist, demeaning, or so sexist as to appropriately belong in the Stone Age. Some of the articles on the site put forward feminist views about beauty and women's place in society, other articles challenge those views. Many different viewpoints can be read on the forums.

The Age of the Internet is an age of wonder. But many also feel that modern cultures have lost their way. Science, technology and globalization have disoriented many cultures. Remember that for 99% of the time that there have been humans like us that we were hunter-gatherers. Body and mind evolved in adaptation to that lifestyle. Our innate appreciation of beauty also evolved in that lifestyle in which we lived much more in tune with the rhythms of Nature.

Western industrial civilization, which has globalized the world, tries to dominate, control, and exploit the natural to a degree to which the survival of life on the planet is threatened. Other cultures have seen nature, not as something to be controlled but as a source of power on which they can draw despite their anxieties about it. Yet our culture is highly ambivalent about nature as unbridled it is dangerous. One of the problems of Western technological society is that our anxiety about the natural is so great that in some aspects we will do anything to distance ourselves from it and end up being more violent, more destructive than anything imaginable in nature.
