Philosophy of the Arts


Narratives’ life lessons

One of the moral values of art appreciation (according to Eaton) is that it teaches us about narrative coherence, but:

  • Is a human life coherent?
  • When would one say of a human life that it is incoherent?
  • In short: how exactly is artistic (narrative) coherence going to teach us a lesson about our lives?

In “Narrativizing the parochial” I argue that narratives are unnecessarily reductive.
