What does a literary understanding of reality mean? What does it look like?

When we contrast literary understandings with perhaps mathematical ones or scientific ones it includes:

  1. Meaning
  2. Context
  3. Symbols
  4. Reading between the lines
  5. Themes

Science or scientific writing can’t consider context or any of the above, but its tendency to approaching issues from a reductionist approach hedges against that seriously.
