Through the connection between a variety of themes from both Continental and American schools of thought such as Bergsons phenomenological account of the artist, James will to believe, and Marcels creative fidelity, the courageously vulnerable individual is shown to take seriously the ethical implications of the knowledge gained from involuntary memories and similar privileged moments, and do justice to the something more which, though part of our experience of ourselves and others, escapes rigid philosophical analysis.
