Saying ‘I’: First Person Point of View in Literature and PhilosophyCourse Cancelled

Maya Kronfeld

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

What does it mean to say (or think) “I”? What accounts for the unified character of our experience? What disruptions and gaps in experience can be made perceptible through philosophical scrutiny and daring literary experimentation? This interdisciplinary course for undergraduates as well as graduate students explores central problems of point of view and consciousness by focusing on first-person representation. Pairing lyric poetry and first-person prose fiction with key readings in the history of the philosophy of mind, we will follow the intersecting paths of inquiry developed by both disciplines.
