Applied Literature in the Age of New Enlightenment: Projection for Sustainable Development

Eijun Senaha


Applied literature is a discipline that adopts a
moral-philosophical approach for sustainable development (SD).
Its mission is to make a literary contribution to the real world,
with the aim of creating a better tomorrow in the twenty-first
century. Making use of the global movement along with the
United Nations campaigns for SD, applied literature will
re-examine current literary roles and values and set a responsible
standard. This essay introduces a new conceptualization of
literature as a necessary tool to project sustainable society in the
upcoming Age of New Enlightenment.
