Abstract

My thesis offers a critical interpretation of Alasdair MacIntyre’s account of narrative selfunderstanding in After Virtue (1981). It aims to reveal a deep tension at the heart of this account of the self that tracks several of the most important conflict lines in western thought. This tension is revealed by examining closely how MacIntyre’s conception of narrative intelligibility and his social philosophy relates to his claims—posed from the perspective of action theory and practical reason—that human life and action take narrative shape.
