"In Behaviorism, Consciousness, and the Literary Mind, Joshua Gang shows how the internally fraught tradition of behaviorism threaded its way, largely unacknowledged, through unsuspecting critical arguments and displayed its unflagging vitality in modernist novels. The argument of this book is all the more remarkable for the tensions it exposes between the major philosophers of consciousness and proponents of the language theory that surfaced alongside literary modernism."

"Gang's ambitious, erudite work tackles a subject both historical and conceptual: how mind/body dualism was treated in prominent philosophical debates of the last century relates to literature. Behaviorism, Consciousness, and the Literary Mind will be of interest to a wide swath of readers."
