Hedonism in Esthetics is for many difficult to accept, because it seems to them to savour of what is ordinarily called Epicureanism. If it were true that sestheticism merely teaches selfish pleasure-getting, if the artist were led to work merely to give pleasure that he might thus gain advantage to himself, then surely we could not complain if our ethical masters were to renew ascetic attacks upon all emphasis of sesthetic culture. But as we have already seen, there is no warrant under our theory for any such view. The artist follows, blindly as to the end in view, the voice of a leader, the guidance of an impulse, and the one who judges rightly of beauty is as far removed from egoistic influence as is possible under any of the circumstances of life. The very forms under which the higher art necessarily presents itself, force self-centredness to give place to sympathetic width of view; the cramping limitations of egoism break down in the Eesthetic atmosphere.

If objects appear beautiful to us as they are able to produce in us a sense of living, permanent pleasure in revival, then it is evidently impossible that we should perceive beauty in an object unless it does produce these permanent pleasures.
