D.G. Myers on Fiction and Ideas

In response to the Maverick Philosopher's comments on John Gardner's comments on fiction and philosophy, D.G. Myers has two excellent posts on fiction as an expression of the human intellect:

The Literary Fuzzhead
Plot and Thought

As any longtime reader would guess, this is a subject on which I feel strongly, and I incline more toward Myers's view. But I haven't looked in any great detail at the subject here, beyond making a few minor points here and there in fairly limited contexts.
