Beautiful People

I attended a lecture a couple of months ago by Jerrold Levinson. He was discussing the concept of beauty, and why it was a discussion which could be looked at as an issue within "aesthetics" rather than "art". He said the following...

"There is more beauty outside of art than there is beauty inside of art. How many works of art are there? Maybe 2 Billion. How many people are there? 6 Billion. Maybe a third of them are beautiful"
