The Proof and Discovery of the Essence of Beauty in Chinese Aesthetics
Discovery and proof, being of different logical systems, respectively belong to phenomenology and ontology. Chinese aesthetics found beauty by the method of lassical phenomenology. In different historical periods, it has carried out Tao's ontological proof and emotional ontological proof of beauty. The discovery and definition of the essence of beauty in Chinese aesthetic is through Taoist pleasure and emotional excitement, which has a characteristic of dualism. Therefore, its proof of the essence of beauty is also dualist: one is to certify Taoist beauty, and the other is to certify emotional beauty. Both of them have logical inference, but the latter has more reliance on aesthetic experience. Above all, for Chinese aesthetics, the proof of beauty is relatively weak, and the logic of discovery is stronger than the logic of proof.
