Literature: Why?

Question: Why read literature?

Answer/Quote: “It [literature] demands that we examine our own philosophies of life and recognize that for every belief we hold, a multitude of other beliefs exist, some parallel to our own but many others contradictory. What more valuable knowledge could we wish to impart to our students?” p. 35.

Comment: We read literature to examine our own philosophies of life. RayS.
