Does attractiveness rule the world?

Professor Raj Persaud
Visiting Gresham Professor for the Public Understanding of Psychiatry


Babies only a few months old already spend more time looking at attractive faces compared to the unattractive, suggesting we could be genetically or biologically programmed to appreciate beauty and respond to it.

But why should this be if, as many argue, beauty is 'in the eye of the beholder' or in other words a cultural construct?

The evolutionary purpose of beauty and its role in our lives is unpacked and discussed - plus some tips on how to make yourself more attractive.
