Jane Austen's Emma: Philosophical Perspectives

Oup Usa (2018)

Eva Dadlez
University of Central Oklahoma
What has Emma Woodhouse to say to a discipline like philosophy? The minutia of daily living on which Jane Austen's Emma concentrates our attention permit a closer look at human emotions and motives. Emma shows how friendships can affect one's ways of dealing with the world, how shame can reconfigure self-understanding. That is, Emma leads us to think philosophically.
