Daily Nudge: what is beauty?

beauty queenElizabeth Taylor, considered at one time to be the most beautiful woman in the world, died recently at 79. (Don’t get me started on her and her Hollywood ilk.) So here’s one of the great philosophical discussions (really!) of all time as your nudge for the weekend: define beauty.

Describe what makes a person beautiful.

Our grandmothers said that beauty is as beauty does. But be more specific.

A related question is how beauty relates to men. Usually, in the past, at least, men were called handsome, rather than beautiful. Who knows what the egalitarian extremes require today.

Note: The picture, by the way, was the first to pop up in a Google search for beauty.
