In this paper, I will examine what is involved in a science of sensory knowledge and what the role of beauty could possibly be in such a science. Through this examination, I will highlight the relationship between aesthetics and phenomenology, or more specifically between the aesthetic mode of perception and the phenomenological method, and discuss their role in philosophical thinking as embodied critical thinking. The role of sensing, touching and moving in and with thought will especially be emphasized.
