5525. MORALITY, Foundations of.—[further continued].

The Το καλον of others
is founded in a different faculty, that of taste,
which is not even a branch of morality. We
have, indeed, an innate sense of what we call
the beautiful, but that is exercised chiefly on
subjects addressed to the fancy, whether
through the eye in visible forms, as landscape,
animal figure, dress, drapery, architecture, the
composition of colors, &c., or to the imagination
directly, as imagery, style, or measure in
prose or poetry, or whatever constitutes the
domain of criticism or taste, a faculty entirely
distinct from the moral one.—
To Thomas Law. Washington ed. vi, 349.
(M. 1814)
