We've had a fair few questions about perception of beauty or aesthetic judgements?

What's a good tag for this?

UPDATE: I also note that we have the tag.

  • I would propose that most of those physical attraction questions would be better tagged sexual-attraction

If there is a proper scientific term in the field of psychology/psychiatry/neuroscience/cognitive science, clearly that should be used. If anyone knows of such a term, please answer this question with it!

I am unaware of a specific scientific term for this, so in the absence of one I pospose we use

  • I think aesthetics is about as close as we'll get
