PHL 648

Philosophy and Literature

This course explores some of the rich points of intersection between philosophy and literature. Topics to be addressed may include: the relationship between literature and truth; questions concerning the nature and limits of literary interpretation and authorship; the relationship between literature, ethics, and politics; and whether literary writing can express aspects of reality or of human experience that cannot be captured in standard conceptual or analytic writing.
