Episode Summary

EDIT
Robert Musil's "The Confusions of Young Torless"
AIRED:
Harvard literary scholar Susanne Klingenstein discusses Robert Musil's emThe Confusions of Young Törlessem as part of the Goethe-Institut Boston's "What is German?" seminar. Although at first glance, Musil's novel looks like any other of the fin-de-sicle coming of age novels set in quasi military all-boys schools, rife with sexual abuse fostered by emotional abuse, emThe Confusions of Young Törlessem is also a philosophical book that investigates the limits of knowledge. How do we know what we know and how is what we know grounded in, or determined by who we are?moreless
