Narratives and Narrators
A Philosophy of StorieseBook - 2010
Narratives are artefacts of a special kind: they are intentionally crafted devices which fulfil their story-telling function by manifesting the intentions of their makers. But narrative itself is too inclusive a category for much more to be said about it than this; we should focus attention instead on the vaguely defined but interesting category of things rich in narrative structure. Such devices offer significant possibilities, not merely for the representation of stories, but forthe expression of point of view; they have also played an important role in the evolution of reliable communicatio.
