Literature

Look carefully at the quotation that appears above. Virtually every literary character in Moore, Dante, Homer, Virgil, Sophocles, Marlowe, and Shakespeare who we will read about together, cannot stay on a diet or steadfastly refuses to embark upon one in the first place. Select a temptation (in one of these texts) that threatens to irrevocably mess things up for our hero. What is the temptation? Why does the hero or storyteller give in (they always do)? Are the events depicted timeless or do we still see evidence of these occurrences today?

Select one of the texts and focus upon it and authors who write critically about it (and the author). There are a few ways to approach this study. Imagine yourself as a psychologist or a psychiatrist or a counselor. How would you ‘treat” the hero? Can he/she see that he/she is making mistakes? Does he or she have a mentor? Would others deal with these circumstances differently?

Posts should be 200 words, though I’m not as particular about length as I am about engagement with the material. While I want to see that you are thinking about the material, don’t feel that you have to show mastery of it. Discussion beyond the basic requirements for full credit is highly encouraged. Do follow the discussion boards through the week. This is where we want to explore and work out questions and points you aren’t totally clear on. The more of a conversation we can have here, the better. Return to the board often through the week and watch for my occasional replies to student posts generally, not just your own. Here are some review questions form the chapter to get our conversation going:

  1. How does dialectic differ from debate?
  2. What is it for a claim to be true? How does this issue differ from that of determining whether a claim is true?
  3. Explain our everyday concept of truth in terms of correspondence.
  4. What is an argument? How do we evaluate arguments?
  5. What does it mean for the premises of an argument to support its conclusion, and what are the two standards of support?
