The Ethics of Catharsis
This chapter illustrates the ethics of catharsis by means of anthropological and cultural analysis. It begins with some anthropological examples of how catharsis is linked to the process of narration. It reveals that the creative repetition of narrative is ethically imperative because it provides a clearer view to review insufferable pain and unbearable loss.
