Why do we think the natural world is beautiful?

The Department of Philosophy at the University of North Texas is a hotbed of environmental ethics. They publish the journal by that name, for one thing, and the faculty there includes several of the most distinguished environmental philosophers in the world (Eugene Hargrove, J. Baird Callicott).

Although this has been on the web for some time, you may never have seen it. See a slide show that accompanies one of Prof. Hargrove's lectures, here, concerning why we think nature is beautiful.
