Course Description

This course will explore various philosophical themes through literary and philosophical writings. We will discuss philosophical issues such as the relationship between individuals and society, knowledge and truth, ethics, personal identity, and oppression. In the process of using both philosophical and literary texts to address these issues, we will examine the distinction between philosophy and literature. Rather than try to survey all major philosophical themes and approaches, this course will select a few particularly salient texts and their interconnections.
