Description

The idea of the "self" is one we take largely for granted: it's difficult to imagine that the "selfhood" we ascribe to ourselves and those around us might be somehow experienced or imagined differently. Scholars increasingly agree, however, that modern conceptions of the self--foregrounding individualism, autonomy, and self-determination--are a product of literary and philosophical developments of the past 400 years. This course will examine influential works of English and European literature from a critical period—the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries--during which many of these changes took place, while also considering recent contributions from other disciplines that challenge some of our deepest resulting beliefs about what it means to be human.
