Abstract

I argue that certain persons are beautiful because their bodily comportment effectively expresses their virtues – moral qualities or excellences of character, like compassion, kindness, and humility. I defend this claim against a couple of objections and end by suggesting that inner beauty deserves to be taken more seriously within modern discourses of beauty.
