PHIL 069. Phenomenology-Then and Now
In this course we will look at classic figures in phenomenology like Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty, along with contemporary theorists, in order to investigate the kind of light descriptions of the lived experience of specifically human bodies in all their variations might shed on questions we face in the 21st century about what it means to be human, (as opposed to, say, non-human life or artificial intelligence), embodied cognition, interdependent living and environmental change.
