These approaches are part of a more global paradigm shift in the humanities and social sciences, that of naturalization. After many decades of culturalistic / historicist primacy in the investigation of the products of human mind(s), this approach asks for a reconsideration of the biological and naturalistic rationales of every aspect of human life, included the production and fruition of cultural and artistic artifacts. During the course, we will examine and debate some of the fundamental tenets of this studies and research.
