Read full description of the books Darwin's Bridge: Uniting the Humanities and Sciences:
In its modern usage, the term "consilience" was first established by Edward O. Wilson in his 1998 book, Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge. Wilson's original thesis contained two parts: that nature forms a unitary order of causal forces, hierarchically organized, and that scientific knowledge, because it delineates nature, also forms a unitary order, promising consensus among diverse fields.
Bringing together cutting-edge scientists and scholars across this range, Darwin's Bridge gives an expert account of consilience and makes it possible to see how far we have come toward unifying knowledge about the human species, what major issues are still in contention, and which areas of research are likely to produce further progress. Readers will be delighted as they, along with the work's contributing authors, explore the deeper meaning of consilience and consider the harmony of human evolution, human nature, social dynamics, art, and narrative.

Joseph Carroll (b. 1949) is a scholar in the field of literature and evolution. He is currently Curators’ Professor at the University of Missouri-St Louis, where he has taught since 1985.
Evolution and Literary Theory established the field of evolutionary literary studies and critiqued poststructuralist theory for seeing the world as if it were textual and for seeing meaning as undecidable. Literary Darwinism: Evolution, Human Nature and Literature collected the essays from Carroll’s next decade. A second volume, Reading Human Nature, collected later essays. Carroll and colleagues have applied empirical methods—an Internet survey of reader responses—to an evolutionary analysis of British nineteenth century fiction, Graphing Jane Austen. Carroll edited Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species and co-edited volumes 1 and 2 of The Evolutionary Review.
