Joseph Carroll has a new book!

Exciting news for those interested in evolution and literature. Joseph Carroll has a new book coming in March!

Reading Human Nature: Literary Darwinism in Theory and Practice

You may rest assured that it is on my short list. Especially anything described as "Essays in constructive literary theory, polemics, practical literary criticism, empirical (quantitative) literary Research, and intellectual history."


  1. Thanks, Troy. Truth is, the book came out early; it's available already on Amazon, or on the SUNY Press site. I have copies in hand, and a friend told me she'd already ordered one.

    If you've ever published with SUNY Press (for instance, contributing to The Evolutionary Review), you can get a 40% discount from them.

  2. Hmmm. Sounds like a great reason to contribute something to The Evolutionary Review. ;-)
