Course Description

Plato equated fiction with falsehood and denounced it as both misleading and morally corrupting. Today, fiction in the form of narrative representation - or, more simply, stories - permeates almost every aspect of our culture, from entertainment to ethics, law, medicine, history, and therapy. The pendulum has swung such that we are far more likely to accept Paul Ricoeur’s view on narrative identity than heed Plato’s warnings. This course will evaluate the uses and misuses of stories, drawing on contemporary philosophical and critical work.
