Abstract

This chapter argues that one shortcoming of analytic philosophy is hemianopia: a narrow focus on left-brain processing skills. Because of this, analytic philosophers end up ignoring important sources of information, one of which is narrative. Narratives that relate one person's experience of another convey non-propositional information about the person (or about persons generally) that might, in principle, function evidentially in philosophical argument. This is of particular importance in theology; for the Bible is a rich source of narratives relating the experiences of God that have been had by various people.
