Guest Editorial:  Defining Beauty: the Hippias Major and Contemporary Musings

Abstract: Hindsight can be a great teacher. The purpose of this editorial is to outline briefly a 2500-year-old debate about the importance of providing, or at least searching for, accurate definitions, particularly about the nature of beauty, and how the debate is relevant to modern dentistry owing to its emphasis on dentofacial aesthetics, followed by a brief discussion regarding the potential relevance of this debate to modern dentistry, including some comments on the ethics of current practice.
