About me

This is a class on literature, epistemology, and metaphysics during the long eighteenth century. We will read from the major works of British philosophy, including Hobbes, Locke, Hume, and Smith, and touch on concerns like the mind-body problem, ideas and mental representations, the passions, and personal identity. We will also look at the treatment of similar topics in literary texts, including works by Rochester, Behn, Pope, and Sterne. Here we will look at how works of poetry and fiction attempt to work through and in some cases model philosophical problems.
