Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder
Peter Hall - 19 Mar 2010
We present a prima facie case in favour of the proposition that images can be given an objective ordering of beauty. The results demonstrate there is significant agreement amongst those 64 people asked to order images by ranking beauty. The experiment did not define what was meant by beauty, or in anyway suggest a meaning, that definition was left entirely up to each participant. Because the level of significance for expected rank ordering is high, we conclude there is an objective order to beauty.
