Philosophy for Writers Part III [Charles Mudede]
Philosophy for Writers Part III is for any writers regardless of previous enrollment in a Philosophy for Writers course. In this class, we will enter philosophy from a path that starts with Adam Smith’s The Theory of Moral Sentiments and ends with Judith Butler’s The Psychic Life of Power: Theories in Subjection. In between these works are Neitzsche’s dizzying On the Genealogy of Morality and Foucault’s dazzling Discipline and Punish. Though these works focus on the nature and structure and limits of human morality, the class will also examine their literary value and beauty. If you are a poet or a writer who wants more poetry in their prose, join us on this speculative adventure.
