PHIL 1.15 Selves and Stories

Humans are narrators, making sense of themselves and their world. But what are narratives and how do they function? How do narratives engage emotions, desires, and imagination? What sorts of elements belong to narratives? What role does narration play in self-construction? Is it important to have ‘a life-story’? Are narratives an important part of authentic or ethical living? How do narratives differ from other forms of communicative or literary expression? How do individual narratives and social narratives interact? Can narratives serve as arguments or reasons or justifications or explanations? How do narratives figure in human inquiry, human agency, and moral responsibility?

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
