Cíle předmětu
At the end of the course students should be able to understand and explain some of the principle ideas of Iris Murdoch's philosophy in relation to her fiction writing. After reading Murdoch's Booker Prize-winning novel The Sea, the Sea and a selection of theoretical and philosophical texts, students will be able to analyse, discuss and interpret Murdoch's fiction in the light of her views on novel writing and her moral philosophy. The course will develop the students' skills of critical thinking, literary analysis and work with secondary literature. Students will employ and apply the acquired knowledge and skills of analysis and interpretation in writing their end-of-term essay.
