MUSIC.ART.CULTURE.LIFE ~ Beauty is a call. Beauty is a shock. Beauty is a wound that raises us above the world and into the realm of the transcendent. Welcome to Call.

In ancient Greek the word for beauty is derived from a word which literally means a call. 

Beauty is a call. Beauty is a shock. Beauty is a wound that raises us above the world of what philosopher Jacques Maritain called our sense needs and sentimental egos–into the realm of the transcendent. 

Welcome to Call.

Your place on Aleteia for reviews and commentary on the arts, entertainment and culture. Refreshed each Friday.
