Literature, Irrationality, and the Prospect of Didacticism.
Casement, William
Journal of General Education, v37 n4 p261-79 1986
Discusses the didactic value of literature study. Considers contemporary irrationalist philosophy's emphasis on human experience's subjective nature and its rejection of the possibility of shared, objective moral concepts being conveyed by reading literature. Acknowledges literature's subjective elements, while stressing the objective, cognitive contributions of literature to general moral education. (AYC)
