In this fascinating study, Peter Johnson makes explicit the issues involved in using the novel as a source in moral philosophy. The book pays close attention to questions of method, aesthetic accounts of the novel and the nature of ethical knowledge. The views of leading philosophers are examined and criticized in the light of the book's distinctive contribution to the current debate.

'Peter Johnson's impressive study gives us an erudite and perceptive reading of recent work that has investigated the novel's role in ethical theory.' - Philosophical Writings
