No Smell, No Taste

- When a person has a cold, the food that they eat most likely does not have a taste. Most may think that it is a person’s taste buds that are providing the tongue with flavor, but it is really the nose. Seventy-five percent of what we taste from food comes from one’s sense of smell. From the sweet flavor of strawberries to the spicy taste of salsa, the tongue itself actually tastes only twenty-five percent of it. The average person can distinguish between 4,000 to 10,000 various odor molecules. Although there is not much known about the nasal cavity, one thing is certain: Little can be tasted without a sense of smell....   [tags: Anatomy]

David Hume's Of the Standard of Taste

- David Hume’s essay “Of the Standard of Taste” addresses the problem of how objects are judged. Hume addresses three assumptions about how aesthetic value is determined. These assumptions are: all tastes are equal, some art is better than others, and aesthetic value of art is defined by a person’s taste(from lecture). However, Hume finds the three beliefs to be an “inconsistent triad”(from lecture) of assumptions. If all taste is equal but taste defines the aesthetic value, how can it be that some art is good and others bad....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Is there an objective standard of taste?

- In Aesthetics, it is thought that in order to show that a work of art is truly great, it is required that an assessment of aesthetic value must be made (Graham, 2001). Therefore, it can be seen as important that such criteria of can be defined in order to make such an assessment.

The Mind 's Eye By Bill Mckibben

- Our mind is probably the most important part of our body. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to control any of our movements, actions, or our senses, touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste.

Georgina Kleege, a teacher, novelist, essayist, and translator, was about eleven years old when she started to lose her sight. In her memoir, The Mind’s Eye, she describes how her blindness has impacted her life and the way she sees the world while being “visually challenged.” Similarly, in Television and the Twilight of the Senses, by Bill McKibben, a naturalist and author, he reflects on his e...   [tags: Perception, Sense, Mind, Taste]

The Evolutionary Explanation For Food Preference

- The evolutionary explanation for food preference suggests that selective pressures faced by our ancestors in the environment of evolutionary adaptation (EEA) have shaped our eating behaviours.

For example, our common desire for fatty foods could be explained by the fact that fat is rich in energy and therefore would have promoted survival. Support for this preference comes from Stanford who found that chimps in a Tanzanian national park immediately gravitated towards the fattiest parts of an animal after killing them, such as the brain....   [tags: Nutrition, Cooking, Taste, Food]
