PHI3041 Philosophy Through Literature

As with PHI 2041  , this course examines how literature has been used to explore vital philosophical issues, such as the nature of human life and death, human relationship with the “divine,” the place of humans in the natural world, and the qualities of a just society. It also considers how “Western” civilization has elevated certain philosophical issues, especially the role of logic and the notion of the “self.” Students taking this course at the 3000 level are expected to read at least one additional work of literature, and to write analytical research papers that draw connections across multiple disciplines and examine multiple perspectives on philosophical issues. Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. Students cannot receive credit for both PHI 2041  and PHI3041. Credits: 3.000
