Hmm …

… Why Beauty Is Not Universal. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The question addressed here does not seem to be whether or not beauty is universal, but whether such universality can be demonstrated scientifically. Moreover, the point isn’t that all great works of art are liked by everyone, but rather that all great works of art have something in common with each other. Finally, beauty is hardly confined to art. I rather suspect that sunrises and sunsets have a well-nigh universal appeal.
