Although beauty has never been a mainstream sociological topic, it is not true that sociologists have not been interested in social aspects of aesthetics. Traditionally, however, sociological and philosophical approaches towards beauty have excluded each other. The article challenges the assumption made by Pierre Bourdieu that sociologists should reject philosophical concepts of beauty. On the contrary, it searches for sociological implications of philosophy. The article presents the thoughts of Theorstain Veblen, Herbert, Blumer and Georg Simmel and stresses the similarities between their theories and the philosophical concepts of beauty as clarity, beauty as integrity, and beauty as harmony.
