 Ghosts in Philosophy and Literature

Summer Term 2016, Tuesdays, 11:00 – 13:00, ten weeks starting 12th April

Course Tutor: Anja Steinbauer.

Not only have ghosts haunted literature from Homer to Dante, from Shakespeare to Terry Pratchett, they also creep into philosophy in various forms, affecting philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion, cultural criticism and philosophical anthropology. We will use both literary and philosophical texts to explore the critical function of the “ghost” in the Western tradition.
