Beauty: Not actually in the eye of the beholder [Good Articles]

3 Dec

The writer, the painter, the poet, the sculptor, the photographer, the dancer, the singer, the composer, the scientist, the designer, the anthropologist, the historian, the biologist, the psychologist, the philosopher, the aesthetic ponderer, the sociologist and others will enjoy today’s TED Talk Animate.

Check out this video of Denis Dutton’s provocative theory on beauty — that art, music and other beautiful things, far from being simply “in the eye of the beholder,” are a core part of human nature with deep evolutionary origins.

There’s an 80% chance you’ll get goosebumps, btw.
