The Age of Reason saw a rise in an interest in beauty as a philosophical subject. For example, Scottish philosopher Francis Hutcheson argued that beauty is "unity in variety and variety in unity". In the Romantic period, Edmund Burke postulated a difference between beauty in its classical meaning and the sublime. The concept of the sublime, as explicated by Burke and Kant , suggested viewing Gothic art and architecture, though not in accordance with the classical standard of beauty, as sublime.
The 20th century saw an increasing rejection of beauty by artists and philosophers alike, culminating in postmodernism 's anti-aesthetics. In the aftermath of postmodernism's rejection of beauty, thinkers have returned to beauty as an important value. American analytic philosopher Guy Sircello proposed his New Theory of Beauty as an effort to reaffirm the status of beauty as an important philosophical concept.
Beauty is also studied by psychologists and neuroscientists in the field of experimental aesthetics and neuroesthetics respectively. Psychological theories see beauty as a form of pleasure. Standards of beauty have changed over time, based on changing cultural values. Historically, paintings show a wide range of different standards for beauty.
However, humans who are relatively young, with smooth skin, well-proportioned bodies, and regular features, have traditionally been considered the most beautiful throughout history. A strong indicator of physical beauty is " averageness ".
This was first noticed in , when Francis Galton overlaid photographic composite images of the faces of vegetarians and criminals to see if there was a typical facial appearance for each. When doing this, he noticed that the composite images were more attractive compared to any of the individual images. A feature of beautiful women that has been explored by researchers is a waist—hip ratio of approximately 0.
Physiologists have shown that women with hourglass figures are more fertile than other women due to higher levels of certain female hormones, a fact that may subconsciously condition males choosing mates. For instance, in some non-Western cultures in which women have to do work such as finding food, men tend to have preferences for higher waist-hip ratios.
People are influenced by the images they see in the media to determine what is or is not beautiful. Some feminists and doctors [ vague ] have suggested that the very thin models featured in magazines promote eating disorders ,  and others have argued that the predominance of white women featured in movies and advertising leads to a Eurocentric concept of beauty, feelings of inferiority in women of color,  and internalized racism.
Fatima Lodhi , a young diversity and anti-colorism advocate from Pakistan , claims that "Beauty comes in all shapes, shades and sizes". A multibillion-dollar industry of Japanese Aesthetic Salons exists for this reason.
Beauty presents a standard of comparison , and it can cause resentment and dissatisfaction when not achieved. People who do not fit the "beauty ideal" may be ostracized within their communities. The television sitcom Ugly Betty portrays the life of a girl faced with hardships due to society's unwelcoming attitudes toward those they deem unattractive. However, a person may also be targeted for harassment because of their beauty. The documentary Beauty in the Eyes of the Beheld explores both the societal blessings and curses of female beauty through interviews of women considered beautiful.
Researchers have found that good looking students get higher grades from their teachers than students with an ordinary appearance. How much money a person earns may also be influenced by physical beauty. One study found that people low in physical attractiveness earn 5 to 10 percent less than ordinary looking people, who in turn earn 3 to 8 percent less than those who are considered good looking.
In the marriage market, women's looks are at a premium, but men's looks do not matter much. Discrimination against others based on their appearance is known as lookism. Augustine said of beauty "Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses it even to the wicked. Philosopher and novelist Umberto Eco wrote On Beauty: A history of a Western idea  and On Ugliness From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Xue, Yingxian; Yang, Mingyang: He then worked at Imperial College between He was a senior principal engineer, manager, and standard executive of Honeywell Turbo Technologies.
He received several awards from Honeywell for his engineering service to the company, and was a Distinguished Visiting Fellowship of Royal Society of Engineering, UK in Zach Ashton has worked as a development engineer at BorgWarner Turbos for the past six years with a focus on analytical and experimental development of bearings and rotordynamics.
Gee has worked as an Engineering Manager at Honeywell Transportation Systems within the last year on air compression technologies for proton exchange membrane PEM fuel cell applications. Previous responsibilities with Honeywell Aerospace have included design and project engineering, and program management of high—speed turbomachinery and other compressor types, and thermal management systems for aircraft. Calogero Avola has occupied the role of research collaborator for the Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre at the University of Bath since being awarded the title of PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the same university.
His research has focussed on the characterisation of turbochargers to enhance 1D models of turbocharging systems, which are adopted in automotive powertrains. Since , he has the role of thermodynamics and engine simulation engineer at BorgWarner Turbo Systems, where he continues to research and develop turbocharging solutions to improve efficiency of future automotive powertrains.
Nicholas Anton hold an M. The work is focusing on energy utilization of the exhaust gasses. He subsequently worked as a CFD consulting engineer for CD-adapco and as aerodynamicist designing high lift systems for HawkerBeechcraft, before joining BorgWarner Turbo Systems in to become the principal compressor aerodynamicist for commercial vehicle applications. Michael Baldauf is currently employed by Continental Automotive GmbH where he is working on a PhD thesis on computational rotordynamics which is supervised by the University of Kassel.
Charlotte Boig graduated Master of Physics with first class honours with distinction from the University of York in Her research focusses on the application of Selective Laser Melting, an additive manufacturing technique, to Ni-base superalloys for turbocharger applications, specifically investigating the feasibility of this processing route to high temperature rotating components.
Charlotte is particularly interested in explaining the crack susceptibility of SLM processed, precipitation hardened superalloys. Michael and his group's current research is focussed on developing innovative solutions to meet future engineering challenges within the turbomachinery industry, specifically materials, surface treatments and manufacturing processes to improve product durability, optimise frictional response and minimise product cost.
In the same year he started professional career and joined MHI, strength and structural department in research and innovation center. In , he developed new ultrasonic inspection method and remaining life prediction technique for a steam turbine. In present, he studied new strength evaluation method for an automotive turbocharger.
