Topics in Literature and Philosophy: The Commodity and the Concept

This course explores major theoretical derivations of our working concepts of the commodity and the concept, before investigating the dynamic relation between them, including: the dependence of the former on the latter, the "transformation" of the latter into the former, the asymmetry of their mutual productivity, and the production of history from their relation. Readings in economic and conceptual philosophy and literary works in which these processes are narrated.
