Narrative in Culture examines how narrative works in different arenas. It presents essays by specialists in philosophy, literary theory, politics, psychoanalysis, the history of science, law and economics. Narrative and discourse dominate the way we relate to each other and to the world. No longer confined to literature and linguistics, the study of narrative has spread to all disciplines with the discovery that "storytelling" is more pervasive and more important in contemporary culture than previously suspected.
