PHIL 139. Phenomenology, Existentialism, and Poststructuralism

In this course, we will examine the themes of reality, truth, alienation, authenticity, death, desire, and human subjectivity as they emerge in contemporary European philosophy. We will consider thinkers such as Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Derrida, Irigaray, and Deleuze to place contemporary themes of poststructuralist thought in the context of the phenomenological and existential tradition out of which they emerge.
This seminar is intended for Seniors and Juniors, with priority given to honors students taking it as an honors preparation.  Others should contact the instructor for permission to enroll.
