PHILS 4520

Philosophy and Literature
3 sem. credits
Spring

This course introduces students to major literary works and the significant philosophical themes embedded in them.  This is course is intended to heighten awareness of poetic, dramatic, and fictional literature as well as the literary mode of discourse as a medium for philosophical reflection, exploration, and analysis.  As a result students begin to appreciate literature to which they have not been exposed previously.  They also move into an understanding of imaginative expression as a vehicle for penetrating philosophical insight in the human condition.  One additional goal of this class is to examine philosophical themes as they are presented in literary texts from antiquity to the 20th Century.
