Facets of Beauty

A conference on the topic of beauty was held January 21-23, 2010, on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The conference, hosted by the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study, focused on the nature of beauty and various disciplinary and interdisciplinary questions raised about this elusive topic. The conference included mathematicians, physicists, anthropologists, economists, lawyers, philosophers, theologians, artists, musicologists, literary critics and film scholars from some of the most renowned universities of the world as presenters and participants. Beauty is one of the three major values—beauty, goodness, and truth—that inspire the Institute.
