Denis Dutton is the founder and editor of the hugely popular Web site. Denis Dutton visits Google's Mountain View, CA headquarters to discuss his book "The Art Instinct: Beauty, Pleasure, and Human Evolution." It took place on January 14, 2009, as part of the Authors@Google series.Our love of beauty is inborn, and many aesthetic tastes are shared across remote cultures. Using forceful logic and hard evidence, Dutton shows that we must premise art criticism on an understanding of evolution, not on abstract theory. He restores the place of beauty, pleasure, and skill as artistic values.
