Product Overview

Brian Boyd explains why we tell stories and how our minds are shaped to understand them. After considering art as adaptation, Boyd examines Homer?sOdyssey and Dr. Seuss?s Horton Hears a Who! demonstrating how an evolutionary lens can offer new understanding and appreciation of specific works. Published for the bicentenary of Darwin?s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication ofOrigin of Species, Boyd?s study embraces a Darwinian view of human nature and art, and offers a credo for a new humanism.
