Acerca de


"In this illuminating and wide-ranging study, Gregory F. Tague returns to a familiar chapter of English literary history in order to give it an evolutionary twist. His erudite account of morality in science, philosophy and the eighteenth-century novel hinges on the proposition that human beings are equipped with an inborn but culturally coded moral sense whose real-life manifestations have also had a bearing on the stories told by people since time immemorial. Typically providing a "narrative of self in relation to others", the early English novel is a strikingly prescient medium for the imaginative reflection of how the social nature of Homo sapiens gives form to moral sentiments - prescient because it seems to anticipate what science has taught us about human nature in recent years. Tague argues this point persuasively by enriching his astute analysis of literature, especially Richardson's Clarissa, with an impressive array of extradisciplinary research. Making Mind is a significant addition to the growing field of evolutionary literary criticism, illustrating not only the by now remarkable scope of this line of inquiry but also the fundamental applicability of evolutionary psychology to the study of literature." - Anja Muller-Wood, Johannes Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz "A biologist, a philosopher and a literary historian walk into a bar. The bartender asks, 'What makes a human?' Making Mind is an immediately intense account of the ensuing discussion. No joke-this book covers an enormous amount of ground with an erudite slam, a blistering onslaught of references, and manages in the end to bring C. P. Snow's two cultures together in a way I have never seen done before. Part of this complex project is to demonstrate a productive relationship between evolution and narrative, two buzzwords from either side of the science/humanities divide that are often pigeonholed as code-words for nature vs. nurture. Another theme weaving through this dense account is the ultimately successful argument that the emerging consensus in evolutionary anthropology, bolstered with recent cognitive science, nicely interdigitates with important developments in 18th century British literature in their description of human moral nature. Completely aside from the momentous themes and the blistering onslaught of references, it is refreshing to see a discussion that is equally loving of evolution and humanities: our past and our produce as human beings."- David C. Lahti, Queens College, CUNY
