Abstract

E. O. Wilson has provided a consilient evolutionary approach to anthropology, and to the problems of human nature, action, and ethics, in his book 'The Meaning of Human Existence' (2014). This paper provides a conspectus of the book's argument, and a commentary of some of the critical issues raised in it from the standpoint of cognitive and evolutionary narratology, especially the theory of retrospection.
