SOUZA, José Carlos; LOPES, Luiz Henrique Bernardinelli  e  SOUZA, Vítor Cruz Rosa Pires de. The Dimension of Beauty in Time. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.3, pp. 87-94. ISSN 2177-093X.

The constant search for beauty in contemporary societies exerts a strong influence on the factors that determine the biopsychosocial well-being of individuals. This, however, is not a recent concern. For thousands of years our species has tried to represent itself through art, in a fickle attempt to find true beauty. The relationship between the concepts of health and beauty is confused because not always a beautiful being is healthy and vice versa. In a similar manner, a vision of beauty becomes contrasting when the individuality and body image of a person is suggestive of someone else's vision, which is known as a mirror image. This text presents a brief review of the concept of beauty throughout the history of the Western culture, considering the current implications of the ideal body in the factors that determine and condition the health-disease process.

Palavras-chave : beauty; time; biopsychosocial; health-disease.
