Product Overview

The essays in this collection demonstrate how late-Victorian and Edwardian neurology and fiction shared common philosophical concerns and rhetorical strategies. Between 1860 and 1920, neurologists like Silas Weir Mitchell and Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote moving literature, while novelists like H.G. Wells and Wilkie Collins used fiction to dramatize neurological discoveries and their consequences. These six decades witnessed unprecedented interdisciplinary collaboration between scientists and artists, who found common ground in their shared ambivalence towards the prevailing intellectual climate of biological determinism.
