Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Courageous Vulnerability: Ethics and Knowledge in Proust, Bergson, Marcel, and James contains the table of contents. The main goal in this work is to explore the ethical and epistemological implications of both involuntary memory and the wider category of the privileged moment of which involuntary memories form a subset. As is becoming clear, these two sets of implications are closely linked. Both felt knowledge and courageous vulnerability will be treated as epistemological issues, but the notion of courageous vulnerability will be used primarily to express the ethical attitude required to successfully deal with felt knowledge.
