Book Description

Using Hamlet and a number of other popular and influential seventeenth-century tragedies as case-studies, this book shows how aesthetic experience can help organize the biological functions of our brains into adaptive social networks. Seen this way, art is not—as many recent cognitive scientists have suggested—simply a mirror of our natural mental functions, rather, it is also a useful tool for translating the discoveries of science into progressive ethical practice.
