Kuhns approaches Decameronfrom a variety of literary, philosophical, and historical perspectives. He argues that Decameroncontains a theory of storytelling and reveals the ways in which Decameron'scomic and sexual elements lead into philosophical debate and moral argument. Kuhns also suggests that Decameronis one of the first self-conscious creations of a "total work of art."
