Winter 2018 quarter

Taught by


This program will focus on the philosophy of language and phenomenology, covering the work of Wittgenstein, Husserl, Arendt, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, and other 20th- and 21st-century European thinkers. Students will be expected to have some familiarity with the European philosophical tradition, and some experience reading and analyzing dense philosophical texts. The activities of the program will include close reading and analysis of primary texts within the context of their composition and the writing of reflective, argumentative, and synthetic essays in response to those texts. Students will be encouraged to explore connections between the theories developed in the program readings and their own social, political, and personal concerns.
