To be deleted I guess?
Critique of Good Taste
A critique of Good Taste in the British context can be found on 
- Paul Graham notes, "I think it's easier to see ugliness than to imagine beauty. The recipe for great work is: very exacting taste."
because I do not see a worldwide perspective, is Paul Graham important in the field of aesthetics? --Jahsonic 08:43, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
An admin to move the article to Taste (aesthetics), please. Taste is about aesthetics (not in the sens of « the branch of philosophy »). Sociology is only one of the few disciplines of research on that subject : philosophy, history, cultural studies, psychology...
The Science of Taste
Though 'taste' in the sense discussed here is largely cultural it's based on some common human characteristics. Eg we generally find symmetrical faces more attractive than asymmetric faces. Or take the sensation of bitterness. Bitterness (unlike saltiness) is not a chemical term - many different chemicals taste bitter. The bitter taste is an alarm signal telling us to reject the thing on our tongue as it's probably toxic.
In the more subtle area of art E O Wilson and V Ramachandran have proposed partial theories of aesthetics that ought to be given space here.
A group of graduate student sociologists from the University of Jyväskylä made it a project to completely rewrite this article. I think it's at least a bit better referenced etc now. The section Bad Taste had to be left alone, since we didn't really have any material for it. Jokinen | Talk 11:30, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
What Does This Mean?
"An understanding of taste as something that is expressed in actions between people helps to perceive many social phenomena, like fashion, that would otherwise be inconceivable."
- Helps anyone to understand. I agree that the phrasing could be better.
