Discussions about the relationship between literature and philosophy often focus on literature as a repository of examples that serve philosophical reflection.
In this webinar, Lesley will discuss a different view that emerges from Iris Murdoch’s writings on moral psychology, literature and the sublime.
She will explore the view that our experiences of reading a novel or watching a play can give us a philosophical understanding of other human beings and a moral outlook on them.
