Thinking with Fiction: Big Questions in Literature and Film In this class, we will discuss issues that are relevant to each of us: How can we be sure that what we know is true? Can we really experience anything objectively? What does it mean to be human? How do we know what is right or wrong? Rather than focusing on reading philosophy, we will explore these and other related questions through close reading and careful interpretation of fictional works. For the most part, we will analyze selected works of 20th and 21st century Polish literature and film. Focusing on their philosophical relevance, we will examine their critical significance and discuss how they contribute to our understanding of the world and our place in it. Knowledge of Polish language and culture is not required.
