Nancy Etcoff (au). Demonstrates how beauty is not a cultural construct that exists to tyrannize women & line the pockets of fashion designers, but a universal fascination with the human form which developed along Darwinian lines since the dawn of man. Using theories of the human mind from cognitive science & evolutionary biology, she explains the appeal of high heels, cosmetics, & hairstyles. Shows how sexual preference is still guided by ancient rules that make us most attracted to those partners we are most likely to reproduce with, while her research into the beauty of babies is part of a broader investigation into how beauty influences our perceptions, attitudes & behavior towards others. Illustrated.
