Course content

Study in a stimulating environment for creative thinking, open discussion and critical engagement. This course builds on the longstanding tradition of interdisciplinary research and teaching at Sussex.

You’ll draw on ideas from literature, philosophy (analytic and continental), psychology and intellectual history. You’ll also benefit from activities organised by the Literature and Philosophy Research Network.

You have the opportunity to examine central topics at the intersection of philosophy and literature, such as:

  • the autonomy of the work of art
  • literature as philosophy
  • ethics and literature
  • the experience of reading
  • style and narrative
  • modernism and modernity.
