22HUM059: Literature Something old, something new!

Writer, Sian Evans, tells us that “Literature is a complex thing that performs a wide variety of functions in society” (Evans 2020). Story telling has been used for centuries to do some wonderful imaginative and creative things for its readers and listeners. This unit selects texts that were written about 160 years apart (crudely “old” and “new”) and yet both novels reach across time – in Cadwallader’s case, to the 13th Century, to tell us about the human condition and especially about their female characters’ experience of the world. Our poetry this semester comes from a well-known 20th century Australian poet. Texts to be purchased: “Jane Eyre” Charlotte Bronte. “The Anchoress” Robyn Cadwallader. A selection of Gwen Harwood’s poems will be supplied in class. Paul Martin 0422 389 221

22HUM071: Philosophy – Freedom and Community

WHAT DOES LIBERTY MEAN TO ME IN MY WORLD? An existential question that might interest us with all that’s going on today is, ‘What might it mean to say that I am a free person’? You’ve lived all your life so far subject to various forms of constraints and powers limiting the extent you can say you are ‘free’. What are these? How have they changed? Are they/have they been legitimate? How would you describe your own ‘lived freedom’ today, moving into the foreseeable future? How do you begin to respond to John Stuart Mill’s question about ‘the nature and limits of power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual’? What reflective sense do you have about how these questions have changed over your lifetime, up to and including the present? To what extent is it useful to suggest that our lives are overwhelmingly shaped by how we manage the ‘struggle between Liberty and Authority’? In asking the above, this Philosophy unit will examine and contextualise today’s lived experience of personal and social freedoms.It will pick up on a range of current perspectives that will help you make sense of these queries.
