In this book I present a theory of the nature of morality in Part 1, and, in Part 2, relate this to a conception of dramatic form as a coherent representation of a person's psychological development. The moral theory is formulated in opposition to empirical theories by Hume (in his Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals) and Freud (in his Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis), and Kant's abstract theory in the Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals. Part 2 shows how the complex characterization of the hero in David Copperfield represents a person's development in accordance with the intricacies of our morally determined responses to life.
