Philisophy And Fiction

The New York Times asks: can a novel be philosophical? I would answer that question in the affirmative, but apparently several writers disagree with me, even some who have written philosophical novels.

On a related note, CSD has had the highly-praised All Things Shining: Reading the Western Classics to Find meaning In A Secular Age, by Hubert Dreyfuss (that's actually his name) and Sean Dorrance Kelly on hold at the library for weeks. Might that shed some light on the subject?
