Beauty, Truth, and Goodness

Beauty, Truth, and Goodness

The transcendentals are the properties of being that correspond to three aspects of the human field of interest and are their ideals; science (truth), the arts (beauty) and religion (goodness). Philosophical disciplines that study them are logicaesthetics, and ethics. - Wikipedia

Rudolf Steiner stated that the primary function of education is to exercise the students' faculties of thinking, feeling, and willing. These basic human qualities manifest in civilization as the "eternal verities" of truth, beauty, and goodness, and these in turn, in science, art, and religion.

The transcendentals of truth, beauty, and goodness are closely intertwined. Dubay (1999) observed that “Truth beauty and goodness have their being together, by truth we are put in touch with reality which we find is good for us and beautiful to behold. In our knowing, loving and delighting the gift of reality appears to us as something infinitely and in-exhaustively valuable and fascinating.” In seeking to discuss one, the others are naturally and organically brought into the conversation.
