This book is a collection of nine essays inspired by a conference of the same name, held at the Free Library of Philadelphia in 2006. The focus is on narrative and how the answers to questions about fiction, particularly those related to insight and emotion, change when asked of narrative instead. The differences are most obvious and gratifying in John Gibson and Derek Matravers’ respective papers, though the conclusions reached may be the result of the authors’ perspicacity rather than the switch in focus. All the essays are nonetheless original and thought-provoking contributions to the philosophical literature on narrative.
