Prof. Peter Lamarque
Sample Lecture – The Philosophy of Literature
Peter Lamarque is Professor of Philosophy at the University of York. He has a long interest in relations between philosophy and literature. One of guiding ideas of his work has been the thought that engaging with literature is not just a 'natural' activity, reading and responding to texts, but an activity deeply shaped by cultural conventions. His recent publications include The Philosophy of Literature (Wiley, 2009), Work and Object: Explorations in the Metaphysics of Art (OUP, 2010), and The Opacity of Narrative (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014).
