Content

Over the course of this unit students will develop specific knowledge of the philosophical themes of freedom and subjectivity in twentieth century French thought, and familiarity with the ideas of key thinkers of that period including Camus, Sartre, Beauvoir, Althusser, and Foucault.

Many of the issues that arise in this unit do so as a radical response to the recognition of what Nietzsche called ‘the death of God’. The study materials, readings, and classes are intended to develop students’ skills at communicating complex ideas and developing your ability to carry through a sustained critical engagement with the thought of some of the most exciting philosophical thinkers of the twentieth century.
