About this product
- DescriptionAll the hard questions about human action are about what to include in a story, what can be left out, and how to characterize what gets included. A narrative selects from all the world's motions which ones are part of or relevant to an act, and so narratives give us what narratives have already shaped: the relation is circular. Many narratives can be told of an act, t all consistent. Some features of human action: - events off-stage determine what's happening on-stage ; - many actions pass through motions in view; - an act can be changed after the fact; - action presupposes language; - what an act is can be highly ambiguous; - we judge acts (and narratives) because we have a stake in them.
