Philosophy and Literature 2 (Goodness & Commitment)

Credits: 1

The second trimester of Philosophy and Literature will consist of two units. The first will focus upon goodness. After studying the thoughts of Aristotle, Kant, and Buber, we will read poetry and short stories and study three films (Do the Right Thing, The Unforgiven, and Crimes and Misdemeanors). The second unit will cover commitment; for this section, we will study the philosophers Sartre, Stace and Niebuhr and two plays: Antigone and The Skin of Our Teeth.
