    Abstract:
    This is a short introductory essay for _The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Literary Studies_, published in 2015. The areas covered by _The Handbook_ include cognitive historicism, cognitive narratology, cognitive queer theory, neuroaesthetics, cognitive postcolonial studies, studies in emotions and empathy, decision theory, cognitive disability studies, empirical and qualitative studies, and the new unconscious. The introduction traces the trajectory of the field over the last fifteen years and explains why the goals, methods, and philosophy of scholars working with cognitive approaches to literature are diametrically opposed to those of "literary Darwinists."
