- Plato, “Platonic solid” slight exploration into aesthetics
In the long history of the development of western aesthetics, the relationships between science and aesthetics, especially the relationship between mathematics and aesthetics, are very close. Ancient Greek culture has a notable feature. It has a keen interest that can be hardly compared with by any other ethnic groups on the pursuit of nature. Because they are dissatisfied with the imagination in the poetic world of myth and they are trying to rationally explain the order of nature, its evolution and movement. The natural philosophers of ancient Greece study science and the aesthetic issues at the same time. As the beginner of the western culture, Plato is in behalf of the ancient Greece representatives. He is more than a philosopher. He is a very important influential scientist whose scientific ideas are closely related to the aesthetic concept.
