Innovations in neural imaging have given rise to the relatively new field of neuroaesthetics, an interdisciplinary approach to issues of aesthetics located at the intersection of the cognitive sciences, arts, and humanities. Using G. Gabrielle Starr's discussion of Gian Bernini's Apollo and Daphne in Feeling Beauty: The Neuroscience of Aesthetic Experience (2013), this essay expands on her work by stressing the importance of the phenomenological body and a theory of time to an understanding of the aesthetic experience.
