Product Description

Review

Peter Goldies final book is an important and insightful addition to the ever-growing literature on the nature of narrative and its role in our psychology. ... a deceptively simple and immensely readable work; the kind of philosophical book that is a genuine pleasure to peruse, and one that will inform narrative theory for the foreseeable future. (Roman Altshuler, Philosophy in Review)

One will certainly come away from this volume enriched on the topic (P. Jenkins, CHOICE)

Peter Goldies final book is an important and insightful addition to the ever-growing literature on the nature of narrative and its role in our psychology (Roman Altshuler, Philosophy in Review XXXIII (2013), no. 3)

Philosophically rigorous (of course, this is Goldie!) with beautifully insightful examples and pertinent observations, but equally accessible to non-philosophers (perhaps deceptively so - the prior reviewer appears to have missed the point of the endevour...). No doubt, another classic.

While I don't regret buying this book, I do feel that for students of literature it isn't new. Just what we know already categorized differently, from the philosopher's perspective.
