“From the inside out” – brief comments on Indexed

21 Apr

I was catching up on Indexed today (it’s a great blog) and found this pertinent. It’s definitely relevant to our class – for example, in light of Friday’s discussion, it’s interesting that this does equate beauty with goodness, to a degree – being good makes you beautiful, so beautiful is something you want to be. And it fits in well with Peiss and the idea that goodness will be reflected in physical beauty, but “unnatural” beauty has a perplexing relationship to goodness (we’ve talked about this extensively, but see 16-17). But this is cool because it’s graphs!

There’s also a funnier, if less relevant to our class, graph on beauty below from her book:

Interesting = Observing

    I just wanted to let you know that I sat down and remembered basic math and that I had to read the X-axis first. Then it all became clear. And the Venn Diagram is truly hilarious.
