An Education in Narratives
Gallagher, Shaun
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v46 n6 p600-609 2014
I argue for a broad education in narratives as a way to address several problems found in moral psychology and social cognition. First, an education in narratives will address a common problem of narrowness or lack of diversity, shared by virtue ethics and the simulation theory of social cognition. Secondly, it also solves the "starting problem" involved in the simulation approach. These discussions also relate directly to theories of empathy with special significance given to situational empathy.
