Narrative Humanism

Wyatt Moss-Wellington

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter ties up the social narratology of Part II by looking at some of the uses of narrative in generating ethical conclusions. It covers gossip, the “playing through” of responses to ethical dilemmas, and some of the basic “how to live” questions embedded in a majority of stories. It concludes with suggestions for future research based on this work.

Keywords:   Narratology, cine-ethics, symbolism, social roles, gossip
