Acerca de


Making Mind: Moral Sense and Consciousness in Philosophy, Science, and Literature posits the genesis of narrative as an adaptive function stemming from consciousness and moral sense. The book is unique with its idea of the individual character evolving narrative in relation to the group. Central to the argument is the claim that prehistorically, consciousness and moral sense intersected to form narrative. More than addressing the origin of story, the book examines and explains the evolution of narrative. The book is an interesting study of how our species-inherited moral sense can differ dramatically from one individual to another. While mores pertain to a group, narrative comes from and is processed by the individual and reaches its high point in the novel. We see how the moral sense works in characters as a monitor, and we feel it operating in us as readers in terms of approval, or not.

About the Author:

Gregory F. Tague is a professor of literary studies and founder and senior developer of The Evolutionary Studies Collaborative at St. Francis College N.Y. Generally, professor Tague's scholarly work leans toward reader-response ethical criticism and the history of ideas by examining major English novels from the years 1720 to 1930. More recently, professor Tague writes about character, morality, and the arts from an evolutionary perspective. Previous monographs include Character and Consciousness (2005) and Ethos and Behavior (2008). Professor Tague is the founder and current editor the ASEBL Journal, a peer-reviewed publication which investigates the convergence of literature, ethics, and evolution.
