(no subject)

Here's Denis Dutton on Darwinian Aesthetics. It's an interesting new approach to literature and aesthetics, despite its dangerously simplistic tenets, and, based on earlier writings, I consider Dutton a reasonable and able scholar, so his work on Darwinian Aesthetics should be valid and insightful. I look forward to his upcoming book on DA.

(the well-known Nabokov scholar Brian Boyd is also working on DA, if memory serves.)
