Samuel Beckett, Edmund Husserl, Three Novels, Murphy, Watt
This paper examines the parallels between Samuel Beckett's first five novels, Murphy, Watt, Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable, and philosophy, arguing that Murphy is best understood as a satire of Descartes, Watt is best understood as a satire of Wittgenstein, and Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable are best understood as a satire of Husserl.
