Man is the measure of all things (Protagoras), including beauty.
Measure is the correspondence of human behavior to its natural capabilities and abilities (Democritus).
Beauty, therefore, is a qualitative characteristic of measure, a form of expressing the correspondence of a person's attitude to things to his natural capabilities and abilities.
Beauty is a terrible force, and the stronger it is, the more contradictory the relationship it harmonizes.
According to Wikipedia, “beauty” is:
An abstract definition, but still Wikipedia believes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is subjective, so in the case of your example of a flower that no one has seen, beauty cannot be defined or measured.�
It seems to me that the concept of beauty is born in childhood. The faces of our loved ones, our toys, our place where we grew up…all of this has a greater or lesser impact on our perception of beauty (including its definitions in our understanding).�
I remember the movie “American Beauty”. Some of the characters in the film saw beauty in both a flying bag and a dead bird. Someone in a young body. Someone in a big female breast. And everyone can be understood, because the concept of beauty was formed by the environment in which these characters grew up.�
To sum up, my opinion is that beauty does not exist without a viewer/listener/observer. It is not a priori and is born only at the moment of interaction with the subject.
