*BLACKHEATH PHILOSOPHY FORUM*
*Saturday 11 July, 4 pm-6pm***
*WHAT LITERATURE CAN DO THAT PHILOSOPHY CANNOT*
This talk explores the claim that literature can provide knowledge
of a sort that philosophy cannot - namely experiential knowledge of
things like character, situation, and action. Our speaker will
argue that the claim has some merit. Literature can expose readers
to the qualities of experience, while philosophy can only describe
experiences of a certain kind, and explore the relations of such
experiences to other ones. Rick Benitez will argue that both
sceptical doubt and philosophical reflection are vital for anyone
who would hope to learn from literature.
*Speaker:Rick Benitez*, Professor Philosophy, University of Sydney
