Excerpt from The Æsthetic Movement in England

Now up to a certain point, the theory that beauty is apparent only to some, is perfectly sound, for most persons will agree with Kant, that there can be no strict mathematical definition, or science of beauty in nature, art, poetry or music, inasmuch as beauty is not altogether a property of objects or sounds, but is relative to the hates and faculties brought to bear upon them.

Illustrations of the truth of this axiom will occur to every one it is founded upon the old old truism, tastes dryer. The {esthetes recognise this truth to the fullest extent, but having first laid down certain general principles, they have endeavoured to elevate taste into a scientific system, the correlation of the arts being a main feature of the scheme they even go so far as to decide what shall be considered beautiful, and those who do not accept their ruling are termed Philistines, and there is no hepe for them.
