Master. That's what they call him. I’ve spent my life in a cage, cloistered by politics and social maneuvering. A prisoner to expectation. Yet I’d give anything to be a certain man’s slave.

I can’t breathe until he makes me his. Except he won’t take me until he breaks me. And I’m not an easy submissive to break.

What do you do when your boyfriend dumps you and you’re nursing a broken heart? For Trisha Bernard, the answer’s clear: escape to India, armed with a copy of the Kama Sutra. That way you’ll be ready should love (or lust) strike. But, as Bernard explains in her uproarious account of that madcap adventure, not everything goes quite as planned. At the last minute, she’s joined by her long-lost friend Sally--an eccentric shopaholic who travels with a jam-packed monster suitcase. Then, there’s India itself, where the two women end up almost marooned in the Thar Desert, practically camel-napped in Rajasthan, and attacked by an amorous monkey in Delhi. And that’s just the beginning.... With her ardor for architecture and history, and her Kama Sutra to inspire passion, Trisha Bernard leads us on a wacky, witty, and wonderful romp through one of the world’s most fascinating cultures.
In recent decades the humanities have been in thrall to postmodern skepticism, while Darwinists, brimming with confidence in the genuine progress they have made in the sciences of biology and psychology, have set their sights on rescuing the humanities from the ravages of postmodernism. In this volume, Eugene Goodheart attacks the neo-Darwinist approach to the arts and articulates a powerful defense of humanist criticism. E. O. Wilson, the distinguished Harvard biologist, has spoken of converting philosophy into science, substituting science for religion, and formulating a biological theory of literature and the arts in Consilence: The Unity of Knowledge. Goodheart demonstrates that Wilson's efforts, and those of his colleagues Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker, and Daniel Dennett among others, have resulted in scientism rather than science. If, for example, Dawkins had contented himself in The Selfish Gene with the claim that Darwinism had made worthless other answers to the question of how we have evolved, he would have given offense only to creationists, but questions of meaning and purpose are of another order. Contemporary Darwinist critiques err in assuming that art and traditional criticism aspire to truths that can be codified in terms of scientific laws. If this were so, we would have to regard the speculations of Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Montaigne, Shakespeare, and Rousseau as worthless. Goodheart exposes the philistinism of literary Darwinism, the bad faith and inverted fundamentalism of the Darwinian approach to religion, and the dangers of the eff ort to create a Darwinian ethical system. Taken together, Goodheart's arguments show that in moving beyond their area of competence, the neo -Darwinists commit an ideology, not a science.
