ILC 208 - Philosophy and Poetry

4.00 Cr
An Integrative Learning course where students receive CORE credit in both Arts and Letters: Literature and Faith and Reason: Philosophy. This course brings together pairs of philosophers and poets in conversation on themes common to their works and times, such as the affirmation of life in all its manifestations, the dehumanization of war and oppressive governments, the unexpectedness of events and the unlikeliness of their meanings, and the elemental connectedness between living beings. Although philosophers and poets address the human condition, they have different styles of writing and ways of examining it. By reflecting on the different themes as poets and philosophers write and think about them, students will gain deeper understanding for the human condition and greater appreciation for philosophy and poetry.
