Paul Bloom: Why Do We Like What We Like?

Bloom said it well: "When you come to understand something, when you make sense of it and when you get pleasure from it, you're responding not merely to what you're looking at, not merely the physical features of the thing but to your beliefs about it: where you think it came from, who touched it, how it was made, what its deeper essence is."
