The “Introduction” serves to delimit and conceptualize what I call “bio-aesthetics”: an interdisciplinary, historically informed and epistemologically balanced approach to the study of art and human culture that avoids both the constructivist frenzy of the 1990’s, on the one hand, and academe’s current obsession with biological reductionism and evolutionary theory, on the other.
