Professor at Columbia and interesting book

by at 1:05 am

Nicholas Dame, a professor at Columbia, came out with a new book entitled The Physiology of the Novel: Reading, Neural Science and the Form of Victorian Fiction. This would probably connect with nervous system as metaphor thing. Also, it says on the website that he’s interested in nineteenth century theories of mind (which of course connect with electricity and such). I should try checking out his stuff and see if he talks about that in more detail.
