- aesthetic values
- Those features of a work that contribute to its success and importance as a work of art: the features upon which its significance or beauty supervene . They include the form, content, integrity, harmony, purity, or fittingness of works. In philosophical aesthetics it has proved hard to define these features in usefully specific, objective, terms; they are in any event qualities whose apprehension pleases and satisfies us.
