Summary/Abstract: The publication comprises three literary studies on the relationship between literature and the modern discourse of life sciences: from botany to evolutionary biology to biochemistry. The authors' analysis and reflections concern texts written in different parts of Europe from the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, on the one hand, incorporating the cultural impact of the achievements of such scholars and thinkers as Peter Kropotkin, Elisée Reclus, Charles Darwin, Ernst Haeckel, Louis Pasteur and Henri Bergson, and on the other, modernist narrative prose, represented here by Virginia Woolf and Bruno Schulz.
