Literary fiction is of crucial importance in human life. It is a
source of understanding and insight into the nature of the human
condition. Yet ever since Aristotle, philosophers have struggled to
provide a plausible explanation of how this can be the case. For
surely the fictionality - the sheer invented character - of the
literary text means that fiction presents not the real world, but
other worlds - what are commonly called fictional worlds. In
Fiction and the Weave of Life, John Gibson offers a novel and
intriguing account of the relationship between literature and
everyday life, and shows how literature can give us an
understanding of our world without literally being about our world.
