Kantian Epistemology
PHIL 313
Spring 2019 not offered

This seminar provides an intensive look at Immanuel Kant's first Critique, one of the most groundbreaking works in all of modern philosophy. We will alternate between close readings of Kant's arguments in the CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON and broader comparative discussion of contemporary philosophical debates that have been shaped by Kant's theory of knowledge. Themes will include the difference between human and animal perception, conceptual and nonconceptual content, the nature of human discursivity, and the relation between everyday cognition and scientific knowledge.
