Why is telling stories such an effective method for communicating moral wisdom? Are there moral ideas that can only be revealed or understood as narratives? In this essay, I defend the idea that narrative is an irreplaceable component of our moral understanding and discourse. More importantly, I search for a meta-ethical conceptual framework that can meaningfully support this assertion. I aim to find a way to meaningfully discuss the ethical capabilities of narrative.
