Course Syllabus (SP14) COLI 211 Literature & Psychology: "The Sublime, the Uncanny, and the Imagination"
Author ORCID Identifier
sublime, uncanny, imagination, literature, psychology, fiction
In a world in which what counts as knowledge is predominantly restricted to the measurable and the calculable, those elements of human experience which elude and exceed these parameters are often ignored and discounted. In this course, we will examine questions of the sublime, the uncanny, and the speculative as treated in literature, psychoanalysis, and philosophy in order to think and write critically about them. Here, we will consider the possible extent to which an openness to such experiences can enrich our lives.
