Chapter IX explores how appeal to intensity and his basic metaphysical machinery gives rise to Garcia’s account of Aquinas’ basic trinity of beauty, truth, and goodness. For Garcia, beauty is an intensified object, truth is a form of intensified comprehension, and goodness understood in terms of relation to beauty. Garcia’s views are developed via comparison with A.J. Ayer and W.V.O. Quine on semantic underdetermination and Graham Harman on beauty.

Keywords:   A. J. Ayer, beauty, Tristan Garcia, Graham Harman, goodness, W.V.O. Quine, truth
