A Darwinian theory of beauty

Friends,

DPS meeting
A Darwinian theory of beauty
Wednesday 18 May from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus

This Wednesday 18 May the Deakin Philosophical Society will meet to discuss a TED lecture by Denis Dutton on a Darwinian theory of beauty.

In this lecture, Dutton argues that art, music and other beautiful things, far from being ‘subjective’, have deep evolutionary origins. We'll screen the lecture at the beginning of the meeting before launching into a discussion of the thesis.

For those of you who wish to see the lecture in advance, it's available at http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/denis_dutton_a_darwinian_theory_of_beauty.html.

Hope to see you there.

Kind regards,

Dylan Nickelson,
President, Deakin Philosophical Society.
