Jane Austen and Sciences of the Mind synopsis
The essays in this volume explain Jane Austen's novel through the different lens of science of mind and brain, especially a range of disciplines involved in cognitive science, including neuroscience, evolutionary biology, evolutionary psychology and growth, among others. The field of cognitive literary studies has evolved rapidly in the past few decades and has achieved a critical approach (if it continues to evolve).
One of the most popular authors to analyze from this perspective is Jane Austen. As many critics have observed, Austin has been keenly watching how the mind works in its interactions with other minds, whether when it works successfully, when it happens, as it often happens, it moves uncomfortably, and its perceptions are often synonymous with current neuroscience and Psychological research. Despite the widespread recognition of the special correspondence between the Austin and cognitive sciences, no book has been devoted to this subject.
Jane Austen and the Science of Mind is the first study consisting entirely of readings of Austin (all events plus all six completed novels) of cognitive psychology and related disciplines. In addition, the volume works on the assumption that cognitive and historical methods are compatible, and many articles place Austen in the climate of ideas during her age as well as with current research in science and social sciences.Jane Austen and Science of the Mind offer a new lens to understand and shed light on the fears, techniques, and permanent appeal of Austin novels..
