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.
