    Book details

Philosophy and Literature became a classic interdisciplinary study when it first appeared. It remained in print for 25 years, and was used by both high school and college teachers. Now that interdisciplinary approaches are again highly valued, this anthology of philosophical ideas represented in great literature has made its way back into print. Poetry, plays, novels and short stories are all included, with a biography of each author. Four main selections are based on the Platonic ideas of truth, beauty, and goodness, with a section on commitment which has a modern relevance. Philosophical works introduce each literary section. There are many questions for students, along with introductions to the thought of each philosopher. Plato, Aristotle, Descartes and Kant are included, but most of the philosophers are from the 20th century, like most of the authors. Prominent American women are featured among the writers.Many MySpace pages cite this book as 'My favorite book, ' or 'My favorite pastime'! School departments report 'We are married to this book!'
