Phenomenology, Existentialism, and Poststructuralism|
This course critically examines the philosophical treatment of meaning, interpretation, subjectivity, language, and history within the tradition that extends from Husserl's program of phenomenology, through Heidegger's and Merleau-Ponty's criticisms and existential revisions of phenomenology, to the antiphenomenological projects of Foucault and Derrida.
