Instructor: James Lesher. This course meets TR 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. in CW 208.

In PHIL 482/CMPL 482 we will read and discuss a number of works at the intersection of philosophy and literature. Readings will include works of literature containing philosophical material as well as philosophical works with some claim to literary merit. We will explore the degree to which the inclusion of philosophical material enhances or diminishes the success of the literary work, as well as the potential gains and losses inherent in framing a philosophical account within a literary format.

Enrollment by permission of instructor only.
