Credits: 3

What does it mean to write? What is the difference, if any, between philosophical and literary modes of writing? If it is true, as some have claimed, that a myth is deposited into our language, can there be philosophy without literature? And, vice versa, if philosophy positions us in the world, can there be a literature that is not, at least to some degree, philosophical? Furthermore, who can write what? Is there a gender in writing or a gendered way of writing? Can (or should) women write? And what about other subaltern, what role do they have? Admitting that they can speak, can (or should) they also write? If so, what and for whom?
