Beauty and the Beholder

<strong>Beauty and the Beholder:</strong> Is beauty intrinsic or merely contextual? Is it in the eye of the beholder or part-and-parcel to our evolution? And just why are a plate of spaghetti, an infant and a Georgia O'Keeffe painting all considered beautiful? In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Robert and Julie consider the philosophy and evolutionary biology of beauty. <em>Image: "Morning Light" by Caspar David Friedrich (SuperStock/Getty)</em>
