Das narrative Urteil
The Narrative Judgement

Erzählerische Problemverhandlungen von Hiob bis Kant

Drawing on Greimas' narrative semiotics and on cognitive science, Richter develops his theory of the "narrative judgement" as the core of the "narrative negotiation of problems". Narratives present contingent decisions, but can conceal their contingency in the name of an ideology. As Richter amply demonstrates, the narrative judgement allows the negotiation in narrative of theoretical problems which seem incapable of resolution in argument, e.g. the problem of Job in the Old Testament and the theodicy problem from Leibniz to Kant.
