Overview -
Excerpt from The Theory of Taste Founded on Association: Tested by an Appeal to Facts

Lord Jeffrey (the lively, and very able author of the article Beauty in the Supplement to the Encyclopaedia Britannica) has observed, that the words beauty and beautiful must mean some thing, and are universally admitted to mean something much more definite than agreeableness or gratification in general; and while it is by no means easy to define what that something is, the force and clearness of our perceptions of it, is de monstrated by the readiness with which we de termine, in any particular instance, whether the object of any pleasurable emotion is or is not pro perly described as That every one has a clear perception of what he may chuse to call Beauty, without being able to tell what it is, is not to be wondered at while men continue to believe Beauty to be something sui generic.
