Expanded Course Description
PHIL 199 — When Past Becomes Present: Memory in Literature and Philosophy
How – and why – do we remember the past, even when doing so is painful? Are you the same person you were five years ago? Explore what it means to nostalgically recall childhood days, to mourn loved ones, and to publicly recognize those who have died tragically (such as victims of the Holocaust and the 9/11 terrorist attacks). In order to forgive wrongs, must we also forget them? Do our memories ultimately determine our identities? Address these questions and more through poetry, short stories, novellas, graphic novels, and plays, as well as philosophical texts ranging from ancient Greece to the present day.
There are many other First-Year Seminars you can take this term! Search for “FSEM” in the course subject code.
