FLL380.1 Politics and Literature

Taught in Spanish at the Universidad de Chile and may not be offered every semester. The aim of this course is to identify the roles of allusion in literature in the construction of ideas of Max Weber, Carl Schmitt and Hannah Arendt. Regarding Weber, students will study the allusions of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy and Shakespeare and in the case of Schmitt and Arendt, the allusions both made to Herman Melville. Students will identify the argument structure of the approach of Weber, Schmitt and Arendt and then identify how these authors use passages from literary works to express their personal views.
