Is there a Philosophy of Fiction?

Aktivitet: Deltagit i eller arrangerat evenemangDeltagit i konferens


The recent publication of Derek Matravers’s Fiction and Narrative (OUP, 2014) has called into question many accepted tenets of the recent Philosophy of Fiction.

The questions raised include: whether there is a fiction/non-fiction distinction; whether traditional attempts to draw such a distinction track any interesting differences in the ways in which narratives are produced and/or consumed?; whether there are distinctive philosophical questions about fiction as opposed to narrative more generally; whether there is any interesting connection between fiction and the imagination; whether all narrative works have worlds, like the fictional worlds of novels and stories.
