Philosophy and Paradise Lost

Tzachi Zamir

  • The first book-length reading of Paradise Lost by a philosopher
  • Within the philosophy of literature, not only Milton's poem but the entire corpus of religious poetry/literature is almost never discussed. Ascent explains the reasons for this, offering a way by which the philosophy of literature can address this important body of work
  • Unique in charting ways by which Milton can meaningfully engage with contemporary philosophy
  • Argues that Milton's understanding of gratitude was far more penetrating than the views that have come to dominate contemporary gift-theory
