Integrative aesthetics …

… Philosophy and The Novel // Reviews // Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews // University of Notre Dame. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Part of the reason for philosophers to engage with literature, and particularly novels, is that so much literary criticism from professional literary scholars is formalist in nature, or perhaps more concerned with arguing for one fashionable theory or another. Here Goldman comes to the rescue in the second part of this book. The novels chosen are not from the fringe, but rather canonical works familiar to many readers outside the hard core of literature lovers.
