Product description


"This is an exhilarating book - a call for an intellectual revolution made with brio, unstinting reason, and an exciting proof of concept." - Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor, Harvard University and author of The Language Instinct, The Blank Slate, and The Stuff of Thought

"Gottschall is a major star in the emerging field of literary Darwinism. Literature, Science, and a New Humanities makes a brilliant and passionate case that literary studies needs to adopt the research methods of the natural and social sciences in order to combat the intellectual sclerosis that has set in as theory s grip has weakened. The book is beautifully written, highly intelligent, and morally bracing - it is at once a strong challenge, a how-to manual, a manifesto, and a clarion call to change." - Blakey Vermeule, Associate Professor of English, Stanford University

Book Description
