Taught by

This is an opportunity for students to work through one of the most complex works in the history of western philosophy, Hegel’s  Phenomenology of Spirit . Hegel’s thought attempts to deal with what he takes to be the alienation of the modern subject from the project and products of knowledge, education and culture. This model of alienation and the dialectic approach it yields have had a long history of influence, starting with Marx and continuing through the existentialists and the development of critical theory. In addition to seminars and lectures, we will have writing workshops and close reading sessions.
