Review: Ethics, Literature, and the Emotional Dimension of Moral Understanding: A Review Essay [Book Review]

Journal of Religious Ethics 26 (2):409-431 (1998)
Abstract
Frank Palmer, Richard Eldridge, and Martha Nussbaum explore the contributions that imaginative literature can make to ethics. From three different moral philosophical perspectives, they argue that reading literature can help persons to achieve greater moral understanding. This essay examines how each author conceives of moral understanding, particularly in its emotional dimension, and how each thinks that reading literature can promote moral understanding. The essay also considers some implications of this work for religious ethics.
