ADPL 1275 Philosophy in Literature (Spring: 4 )

Course Description

Exploration of such philosophical themes as self-identity, happiness, death, morality, love, truth, fate, God, friendship, violence, hope, and community in two great epics of very diverse form yet surprisingly similar content: Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (recently voted the greatest book of the twentieth century by two worldwide polls) and Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov (recently selected the greatest novel written by a Time magazine poll of living writers).
