Diegesis - Currently no debate

General definition:

Representing something by telling or narrating. The term comes from the writings of Plato and Aristotle, where it was distinguished from mimesis (representing by performing or showing (though they didn’t particularly agree about it, or in fact about much!)

We feel that in Narrative environment design the distinction between the two ways of representing can be blurred in practice. See under mimesis
