Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder… Not What You Might Think!!


In this awesome Ted.com video Dennis Dutton talks about the anthropological basis for beauty, and what it truly means for something to be beautiful. I think he offers great insight into the age old question, “what is beauty?” in just over 15 minutes.

His perspective is quite interesting, and loaded with historical evidence! He also provides a great arististic representation of everything he talks about as the video progresses. Enjoy!!

Now… think of the last thing you thought was beautiful… Make a little more sense now?
