This course examines the economic forces at work in defining and configuring the modern subject, from Adam Smith through Marx and Nietzsche, Simmel and Weber, up to the current neoliberal subject. The course will investigate figures (as both tropes and subjects) of the human conceived according to three economic paradigms: exchange, debt, and interest. The course will focus on both literary and theoretical sources, including examinations of guiding metaphors (the invisible hand, Schuld as both debt and guilt); the intersection of religious and secular economies; pacts with the devil; economies of salvation/redemption; figures of money/value.
