Colorado College associate professor of comparative literature and German, William Davis, presents a microLecture on how philosophy and literature interact with and are amplified by one another.  Davis uses as an example the Romantic era philosophers and poets endeavoring to make sense of the transitory nature of life.

  1. Awesome! Reminds me a bit of an Alan Watts talk.

  2. Paul Richardson says:

    Nicely done. Especially liked the video clips interspersed in the talk.

  3. Mary says:

    Clearly presented a hard-to-grasp idea; thought-provoking. Would love to hear more about how these ideas affected thinking beyond poets, i.e., society, religion, science, and how they evolved to present day. Thank you.
