FYW-1136 Exploring Politics through Literature


This course seeks to stimulate intellectual curiosity about the philosophic underpinnings of politics through thoughtful readings of literature. Drawing upon the vivid power of literature taken from a variety of different historical and cultural contexts, students will have an opportunity to begin an exploration of the influence of politics on human development. More specifically, how the competing views of nature, religion or the human good embedded in politics influence the possibility of self-knowledge. Literary works will be supplemented with short readings from the tradition of political philosophy. 4 credits.
