Ted Chiang’s “Liking What You See: A Documentary”  Perfect speculative fiction for a philosophy class!

I could not agree more with Tinkoo Valia’s very positive appreciation.  Great speculative fiction (in the form of a non-fiction reportage).

Ted Chiang’s “Liking What You See: A Documentary” (novella, thought experiment): What if we could switch off perception of beauty of a human face? …  Among the best of Chiang; perhaps of the genre too. And with a bit of philosophical bend.  There is a certain amount of notoriety associated with this story. It was withdrawn from Hugo nominations on author’s request because he didn’t think it was good enough.
