Kierkegaard and Nietzsche: Living Philosophy
COL 288
Fall 2010 not offered
Crosslisting: PHIL 276

This course is the study of major texts by Kierkegaard and Nietzsche against the general background of 19th-century philosophy. The reaction against the Kantaian and Hegelian traditions that ensues in these two quite different versions of living philosophy calls attention to central ethical, social, and religious issues. They also underscore the reflexive question of what philosophy itself is (or should be).
