Beautiful, true and good:
the three aims of life in Greek art and philosophy. All three qualities are internally related, occur simultaneously and can be interchanged with each other. They make up the perfect human being.
Until the beginning of modern times (Renaissance in the 14th century), God was seen as the primordial source of being and activity and was praised and worshipped in the arts. Since then, man as the image of God has moved to the centre of contemplation. He sees the beautiful, recognises the true and accomplishes the good. The arts and humanities are the paths to the perfected human being.
This paper is about "art and meditation". As in school, seeing and recognising the beautiful is presented. As in a museum, looking and perceiving deepens into appreciating what is true and real, wholesome and good. Meditation is a royal road to perceiving and appreciating a picture, music, all that is beautiful and good. Eye and ear, head and heart, the whole human being is thus ennobled and elevated to the beautiful, the true and the good.
