This essay examines biological discourses alongside literary and philosophical discussions on the concept of habit from author Gertrude Stein. This was aimed at demonstrating the nonexclusivity of scientific models and using humanistic frameworks in recontextualing habit. Works of Stein were featured to highlight Charles Darwin's views on contemporary biological discourses and sociopolitical ones. The author placed emphasis on the continuum between biology and culture in Stein's writings, which oppose biological essentialism and social constructivism.
