IS 375 - Theories & Literatures of Suffering (3)

What is human suffering? How do we, as an audience, encounter it? How ought it be understood? What is its significance–ethically, politically, religiously, and otherwise–for humans and for human society? These questions inform this course, which revolves around examining literatures (poems, music, novels, films) that address suffering in the context of theories of suffering (philosophy). 2015 CORE: Belief & Reason, Contribute, Interdisciplinary Studies, Global Studies.
