This innovative volume draws on sociobiology to develop and apply an interdisciplinary approach to the study of literature. The resultant essays offer fresh, concerted, and challenging interpretations of canonical literary works that reconcile scientific knowledge with artistic beauty, empiricist rigor with imaginative experimentation, and unambiguous judgment with equivocal compassion. Full of scientific, historical, and philosophical analyses, Toward a Sociobiological Hermeneutic provides a significant educational resource in Darwinism and game theory and champions a sensitive engagement with great writers' contemplations of the human condition.

Michael Wainwright is a visiting lecturer at Staffordshire University. Two-time winner of the Faulkner Conference 'Call for Papers,' his publications include Faulkner's Gambit: Chess and Literature (2011), Darwin and Faulkner's Novels: Evolution and Southern Fiction (2008), chapters in Faulkner's Sexualities (2010), and Faulkner and the Ecology of the South (2005), as well as articles for the Mississippi Quarterly, Criticism, and Papers on Language & Literature.

Review:

'Welcome to a very new and very different interpretive world. Brilliant.' - John Schad, professor of Modern Literature, University of Lancaster

'Crammed with historical and philosophical analysis, this highly original book provides a wonderful education in Darwinism and related fields (such as game theory), an education that is for everyone, whether one is inside or outside academia.' - Timothy Morton, professor of English, University of California Davis
