Reforming the Humanities: Literature and Ethics From Dante Through Modern Times
Graduate studies at Western
Palgrave Macmillan (2009)
|Abstract||This book combines contemporary ethical theory, literary interpretation, and historical narrative to defend a view of the humanities as a source of moral guidance. Peter Levine argues that moral philosophers should interpret narratives and literary critics should adopt moral positions. His new analysis of Dante’s story of Paolo and Francesca sheds new light on the moral advantages and pitfalls of narratives versus ethical theories and principles|
