1879 - John Ruskin’s -True and Beautiful In Nature, Art, Morals, and Religion
John Wiley & SOns, Publishers/ New York
John Ruskin's work, "The True and the Beautiful in Nature, Art, Morals, and Religion," is a comprehensive exploration of Ruskin's beliefs regarding the interconnectedness of various aspects of human life and culture. Ruskin argues that there is an inherent truth and beauty in nature and art, and that understanding and appreciating these elements can lead to moral and spiritual enlightenment. He emphasizes the importance of observing and preserving the natural world and advocates for a return to simpler, more authentic modes of living and artistic creation. Ruskin's work had a significant influence on the Victorian era's cultural and artistic values, shaping discussions on aesthetics, ethics, and the environment.
