Esthetic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeries
In ancient Greek, esthetic is the significance of science or significance of philosophy, which is one part of two parts of axiology. The other section of axiology creates ethics. People’s motions (all they do) and its part interested with moral values is entitled morals (ethics), and its part which examines beauties in nature and art, qualities of these beauties and beautiful appreciation judgments is titled aesthetic.
Esthetics deals with correct motions, which are based on worth, but esthetic is also interested in imagination and creativity, which is held on to natural and artistic beauty. Because of these reasons, esthetic significances are subjective and the hardest to measure and evaluate.
The first person to bring about the term esthetic was a German thinker named Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten in the year 1750. According to him, esthetic is the science of emotional information, and its topic is emotional perfection. What he wanted to accomplish, was to skill thinking based upon the beautiful. The esthetic concept defined as looking for, and sensing the beautiful. The emotion and the brains trial are analyzed as sensorial-sensual. It is closely related with philosophical art.
Before Baumgarten, the German philosopher Immanuel Kant used the term esthetic as a philosophical section. The word esthetic comes from the Greek word “aisthesis” or “aisthanesthai”. The word “aisthesis” means sensation, feeling, and perception.
