Abstract

Structural features of recent neuronovels reposition narrative to complicate previous “two cultures” debates. Ian McEwan’s Saturday and Richard Powers’s The Echo Maker use cognitive science knowledge as their epistemic frames and, in different ways, reveal a “two cultures” paradox: they posit narrative as universal but also show how it is determined by particular needs.
