On the Origin of Stories

Brian Boyd explains why we tell stories and how our minds are shaped to understand them. After considering art as adaptation, Boyd examines Homer s "Odyssey" 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 of "Origin of Species, " Boyd s study embraces a Darwinian view of human nature and art, and offers a credo for a new humanism.
