Teaching, Reasoning, and Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov


by Harvey Siegel — 1989

How are the lessons of fiction, or literature more generally, different from more usual sorts of lessons? In answering these questions, I will be utilizing Dostoyevsky's great text to illustrate claims concerning successful fictional texts more generally—claims concerning the sorts of lessons they teach and the way in which those lessons are taught.
