Hemsterhuis on Mathematics and Optics
As be expressed it, what is beautiful and agreeable depends upon the facility with which we perceive and grasp the maximum number of ideas in one moment of time. I have to put it another way: what is beautiful depends upon out intuiting the regular of what is alive to the full extent of its activity and perfection; it is this that stimulates us to re-create, when we feel that we too are alive and supremely active. Closely considered, this is simply a matter of two different people giving expression to the same thing.3
