Jonathan Gottschall

Jonathan Gottschall writes books about the intersection of science and art. He is one of the leading figures in a new movement that is trying to bridge the humanities-sciences divide.

Unique to humans, and universal across time and cultures, the trait that ties all humans together is our love of stories—especially fiction. It comes so naturally that writer Jonathan Gottschall doesn’t think scientists are paying nearly enough attention to it.
