ADPL 1311 Philosophy and Fantasy (Fall: 4 )

Course Description

Is time travel possible? Will the future be better or worse than the past? Are there extraterrestrials? Does technology make us more or less human? Can you leave your body and enter another’s? Is there a more real world beneath the apparent one? Can we experience Heaven or Hell in this life? What morality would apply to a radically different culture? A look at such philosophical questions through the fiction of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, Ray Bradbury, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, and George MacDonald.
