Abstract: Literature and Philosophy may be two very different fields of studies, but it is not impossible to read literature in conjunction with philosophical ideas. Derek Attridge states Derrida’s belief that “Literary theory, or poetics, has always consciously worked under the sign of philosophy” in his introduction to Acts of Literature, arguing for a possible and creative welding of two different fields of studies (3). Attridge and Derrida both claim that every text can be read as literary and philosophical interpretations of thoughts because the difference between literature and philosophy is not as distinct as it appears to be. The claim is not difficult to digest as one often comes across fictions illustrating philosophical concerns of death, morality, ethics and being, as well as philosophy very much informed by extraordinary events documented in religious texts and literary fictions.
