The beauty of the mind is only more honorable insofar as it can be artificially abstracted from the beauty of the body. For example, the Japanese philosopher Nishida Kitarō(西田幾多郎, 1870-1945) often uses the phrase “mono-to natte-mi, mono-to natte-hataraku, (物となって見、物となって働く)” which can be translated as, “Look/see by becoming the thing, work/do by becoming the thing.” This phrase means that one should see from within the thing by going within the thing. Even in contemporary India the term rasa denoting "flavour" or "essence" is used colloquially to describe the aesthetic experiences in films; "māsala mix" describes popular Hindi cinema films which serve a so-called balanced emotional meal for the masses, savoured as rasa by these spectators.

By the same token, Ibn Sina also allows for the use of poetic and imaginative discourse that is ethically neutral, seeking neither to ennoble nor to debase what is imitated, but rather merely aiming to 'provoke wonder through the beauty of the comparison' and thus to fulfil what could be termed a purely aesthetic end. This has led to many studies investigating the evolutionary reasons for the human concept of beauty, and their results are often surprising.

Pierre Hadot is famous for his analysis on the conception of philosophy during Greco-Roman antiquity. The probability of an alternative occurrence may be calculated by the formula: Thus, for example, the chances of getting "heads" at least once in two flips of a coin are equal to the chances of getting "heads" on the first toss (1/2) plus the chances of getting "heads" on the second toss (1/2) minus the chances of getting "heads" both times (1/4), or 3/4.

If you aren't moved to sadness by sad music, you've in a way misperceived the music. How best, then, to characterise our intellectual condition today? Ethics (or Moral Philosophy) is concerned with questions of how people ought to act, and the search for a definition of right conduct (identified as the one causing the greatest good) and the good life (in the sense of a life worth living or a life that is satisfying or happy). This turned out to be more difficult than expected because of the complexity of human reasoning.

Like many empiricists he espoused a form of the analytic- synthetic distinction, according to which knowledge can be only of two basic kinds: 'necessary' truths or tautologies which hold independently of particular matters of fact and are true in all possible cases: and factual propositions about the world.

Rarely asked is why college graduates don’t apply? Advanced members who teach others are called "consultants".
