Shakespeare & Mod Philosophy

Fall 2018

Taught By: Paul Kottman

Section: A

CRN: 7410

Credits: 4

In this course, we will read what a number of philosophers have said about Shakespeare's drama, in order to consider the role played by Shakespeare's work in the development of modern philosophy itself. We will pay special attention to certain plays -- Hamlet, for instance -- but we will also look at how other plays have been interpreted philosophically, and at how such interpretations have led to the articulation of new issues for philosophical inquiry. Readings will include works by Herder, Hegel, Nietzsche, Cavell and others.
