So, when I write a piece of fiction I select my characters and settings and so on because they have a bearing, at least to me, on the old unanswerable philosophical questions. And as I spin out the action, Im always very concerned with springing discoveries, actual philosophical discoveries. But at the same time Im concerned and finally more concerned with what the discoveries do to the character who makes them, and to the people around him. Its that that makes me not really a philosopher, but a novelist.
