Beauty in Contemporary Society

Beauty is widely defined as the aesthetic quality of particular objects, which makes these objects enjoyable to see. Such objects may include sunsets, landscapes, beautiful humans and unique works of art. Beauty, with art and beauty, is probably the most important theme of aesthetics, among the various branches of contemporary philosophy. It is the one thing that all the other branches share as a commonality.


The twentieth century has seen an immense development in the study of beauty. A variety of emotions have found expression in its manifestation: desire, identification, guilt, and so on. Modernity has seen the establishment of several national identities through a proliferation of national and local museums; aesthetic beauty has also played a key role in the creation of national identity a popular Romantic idealism. The twentieth century has also seen the rise of several nationalisms, most significantly, a tendency towards homogenous national states in Europe and the United States, the desire for assimilation and, in the case of the US, the creation of an African-American ethnic group, Aussies, that were often perceived as having a more traditional cultural heritage.

In the 20th century, the search for beauty has found new shores and taken to shore too, in the form of abstract art and surrealism. It is the first wave of an aesthetic movement that would redefine beauty in the twentieth century, entire painting canvases without reference to anything real. The movement would ultimately define the meaning of beauty in the modern age.

One of the foremost philosophers of his time, Immanuel Kant is credited with the term ‘value’ or ‘worth’ as the fundamental concept of beauty. He is said to have rejected the subjective idea of beauty altogether. Beauty, according to Kant, is determined only by the human eye, and not by any external standards or criteria. Others follow in his footsteps, and opine that beauty is something distinct and individual to a person, and that there is no universal standard for beauty. The two views differ fundamentally on the nature of value.

In a related view, value may be defined as the sum of satisfaction of satisfying human wants. According to this concept beauty is objective in nature, independent of humans and therefore not dependent on the culture and societal context in which it finds itself. On this view, beauty is timeless and independent of personal points of view. This approach, however, remains controversial and is currently not generally accepted within the art world.

With time and certain key artistic breakthroughs, the definition of beauty has evolved notably. Modern art, for instance, has tended to depict bodily and emotional elements more prominently, and has sought to capture the viewer’s attention and interest through images and the works that are both inventive and disturbing. This approach, common in conceptual art, lends a contemporary flavor to beauty and allows it to appear on various surfaces and in various sizes.

Gaming is one of the most popular hobbies in the world. It is often confused with computer gaming, but the two are very different. Computer gaming is the interactive use of a computer or digital device to play computer games. A video game is merely an electronic game which involves interaction with an external user interface or device through the use of a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, or other motion sensitive device to produce visual feedback to the user.

The video games market has expanded to the extent that it now has a strong online community and active international marketplace. With millions of people playing video games worldwide, it is not surprising to see a flourishing online gaming community with forums, chat rooms and newsgroups devoted to gaming. Many hardcore gamers find online gaming to be a particularly thrilling recreational activity. In fact, some gamers consider online gaming to be an addictive activity. Such people often participate in organized gaming events like tournaments and leagues.

For hardcore gamers, these events provide the opportunity to hone their skills by competing against other hardcore gamers from around the world. Those who don’t participate in competitive gaming activities may not be familiar with the term “competitive gaming.” In simple terms, a hardcore gamer is one who engages in competitive gaming for the purpose of obtaining personal satisfaction by overcoming other players. Most online multiplayer video games involve the use of computers in order to facilitate the interaction between various players. A hardcore gamer will therefore need a good computer system in order to play a competitive game.

Console gaming, on the other hand, refers to the use of specialized game consoles like Play Station, Nintendo Wii, Xbox and so on. Console gaming has become popular among younger generations. Younger gamers especially prefer to use consoles because they provide the ability to customize their game play experience based on the type of game they want to play. Consoles, on the other hand, are designed for use by older gamers who want to have a more classic video games feel.

The past generations did not have much involvement with gaming. This is because gaming is a relatively new concept. People did not have much knowledge about video games when the first gaming console was introduced onto the market. Fortunately, the video games industry has evolved so that younger gamers can enjoy better quality games. Console gaming can become addicting once you start playing.

Today, there is a whole new generation of hardcore gamers that enjoy playing multiplayer video games over the Internet. These individuals often participate in online multiplayer action with other people from around the world. They may be hardcore gamers, too, but their ultimate goal is usually to have fun. This is why many of them are attracted to the online multiplayer gaming scene. The space invaders genre of gaming provides a great outlet for this type of gaming.
