美是道德理想

看起来如何美丽已成为当今世界的道德要求

在当今的视觉和虚拟文化中,对美丽的需求越来越重要。对或错,完美已经成为人们赖以生存的道德理想,根据它我们判断自己是好是坏,是成功还是失败。 Perfect Me探索美感理想的不断变化的性质,显示出它比以往任何时候都更具统治力,要求更高,更全球化。

希瑟·维多斯(Heather Widdows)认为,我们对自我的看法正在发生变化。我们越来越多地将自我定位在身体中-不仅是我们实际的,有缺陷的身体,还包括我们正在转变和想象的身体。在这种情况下,我们进一步拥抱了美丽的理想。没有足够的力量,足够薄的东西,足够光滑的东西或不够抛光的人-都需要大量的努力和表面修饰。随着越来越严格的实践成为规范,对我们的需求也将越来越多,美的理想将越来越难抗拒。

如果您曾经想过“尽自己最大的努力”,或者担心自己在“放手”,那么本书将解释原因。 《完美我》研究了美丽的理想是如何定义我们如何看待自己和他人的,以及我们如何构造我们的日常实践,以及它如何使我们充实充实的美好生活承诺。 “完美我”表明,如果我们要解决美丽的危害,就必须首先认识到它的伦理性质。

How looking beautiful has become a moral imperative in today’s world

The demand to be beautiful is increasingly important in today’s visual and virtual culture. Rightly or wrongly, being perfect has become an ethical ideal to live by, and according to which we judge ourselves good or bad, a success or a failure. Perfect Me explores the changing nature of the beauty ideal, showing how it is more dominant, more demanding, and more global than ever before.

Heather Widdows argues that our perception of the self is changing. More and more, we locate the self in the body–not just our actual, flawed bodies but our transforming and imagined ones. As this happens, we further embrace the beauty ideal. Nobody is firm enough, thin enough, smooth enough, or buff enough–not without significant effort and cosmetic intervention. And as more demanding practices become the norm, more will be required of us, and the beauty ideal will be harder and harder to resist.

If you have ever felt the urge to “make the best of yourself” or worried that you were “letting yourself go,” this book explains why. Perfect Me examines how the beauty ideal has come to define how we see ourselves and others and how we structure our daily practices–and how it enthralls us with promises of the good life that are dubious at best. Perfect Me demonstrates that we must first recognize the ethical nature of the beauty ideal if we are ever to address its harms.
