Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours

Don Quixote’s strategy for handling reality is one of the keys to understanding modernity in Western society. The novel has served as a model for many interactions between an individual’s idea of the world and the world he/she would like to impose it on. In the light of these thoughts, this course proposes a close reading of ‘Don Quixote’ in the historical context of the different Early Modern medical, magic and aesthetic theories that might have affected and influenced the most widely read work of fiction ever written. Enrollment Limit: 14.
