Literary Darwinism is a theoretical school that aims to integrate literary study with evolutionary social scienceŚwith behavioral ecology, evolutionary psychology, and related fields.  Literary Darwinists believe that literature is produced and consumed to satisfy the evolved and adapted needs of human nature.  We argue that literature takes human nature as its primary subject and derives much of its affective power from tapping into basic emotions rooted in conserved features of our species-typical neurophysiology.
