An ancient word, kalon is defined as inward beauty manifested on the outside. With Greek origins, both Plato and Aristotle recognized the beauty of the heart and the importance of being noble, even in aesthetics. Kalon supplements goodness and compliments beauty in an ethical sense. Greek philosophy draws an important distinction between kalon and what is “beautiful.” Note, kalon is solely applicable if an entity is deemed beautiful by demonstrating their worth and honorability, their projection becomes the ideal beauty, both physically and morally.
