Ontological status of the human beauty

About the author:

Natalia S. Andreeva,


The article is devoted to studying ontological aspects of the human
beauty. Since in the epistemological approach to the nature and essence of beauty,
prevailing in research practice, the role of the human beauty in forming the human
essence keeps unclarified, the author places emphasis on the ontological range of
problems of the human beauty. The investigation aims at studying mutual influence
and interrelation of the human beauty and the human essence in anthropogenesis. It is
asserted that the human beauty, as a complicated phenomenon, developed by the tools
of art at various historical stages, was the human essence being mode, harmonizing the
physical and social human nature. The author attempted to discover the human beauty
influence on reduction of the gap between the individual and social beginning of the
human essence. Thus the relevance of the human beauty investigation is founded by
contemporary problems of the human essence state and development. The consideration
of the problem from the perspective of the esthetic and anthropological approach
enables to reveal a more intricate relationship between the human beauty and essence
in cultural genesis.
