SERNA CASTRO, Yobany. Ethics and narration (a phenomenological reflection). discus.filos [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.28, pp.171-188. ISSN 0124-6127.

This paper offers a reflection on the idea according to which literature gives the elements to understand and analyze philosophical, moral and politic problems in a way quite different from that used by philosophy. Furthermore, I intend to approach the problem of moral reflection from the point of view of phenomenology, resorting to a different resource than philosophy, namely literature. To this end, I shall discuss how to understand ethics from phenomenology, by using the ideas of authors like Edmund Husserl and Emmanuel Lévinas. Then, I shall put these ideas into a coherent context using some literary works like The Stranger by Camus and Nausea by Sartre.

Keywords : Ethics; empathy; face; value; rationality.
