What is knowledge? How do we know what we know? We will read literary texts concerned with these questions to consider how knowledge relates to power, and how deception, stupidity, and mystification force us to question what we know. Readings include Austen, Hawthorne, Melville, Flaubert, James, and Schnitzler.
