Becoming Sensible: Thoughts on Rafe McGregor's Narrative Justice

Becoming Sensible: Thoughts on Rafe McGregor's Narrative Justice <p>Abstract:</p><p>I agree with Rafe McGregor&apos;s overall intuition regarding the ethical dimension of narratives, and I wholeheartedly applaud his endeavors to support the humanities via his particular methodology.
