Literature, Analytically Speaking: Explorations in the Theory of Interpretation, Analytic Aesthetics, and Evolution by Peter Swirski, and: Of Literature and Knowledge: Explorations in Narrative Thought Experiments, Evolution, and Game Theory by Peter Swirski (review)


Well yes—Swirski is one of those critics who think that the relativistic postmodernism and social constructivism in much of literary studies has come to a dead end. While I did not completely agree with Swirski on this point, I can’t help but find his work not only engaging, but also quite useful for pursuing the study of literature.
