ENGH 362 - Philosophy and Literature

4 credits
Why would a philosopher turn to a work of literature to explain him or herself? And why does literature so often deploy philosophical questions, concerns, and motifs? Is there something philosophical about literature? Or something literary about philosophy? This class will address these questions through a series of writings that illuminate key points of intersection between literature and philosophy. Authors may include Sophocles, Plato, Montaigne, Schopenhauer, Locke, Rousseau, Emerson, Dickinson, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, James, Du Bois, Fanon, Kafka, Pynchon, Sontag, Coetzee, and Whitehead.  Prerequisite: ENGH 150
