Existentialism, Platonism, Pragmatism

PHIL 220
Spring 2013
Section: 01  
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

The class will explore three different, classic theories of reality and human beings' place in it, one from ancient Greece (that of Plato), one from modern America (that of John Dewey), and one from modern Europe (Sartre and Camus). Each of these theories provides a broad metaphysics, an ethics, and a conception of politics, art, and religion. Each is mind-opening, and when read in conjunction, provide the basis for discussions of some of the most important questions about what it means to be human.
