PHL 553 Post-Existentialist Philosophy

Post-existentialist thought grows out of a critique of the scientific world view, and holds that there are aspects of reality – e.g., human experience, the body, language, history, memory, time – that cannot ultimately be explained in traditional scientific terms. This course explores how such movements as psychoanalysis, phenomenology, hermeneutics, and deconstruction challenge our conventional views about knowledge, reality, and society. Thinkers studied may include Freud, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Foucault, Arendt, Levinas, Derrida, and Deleuze. UL Lect: 3 hrs. Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
