PHIL 229 Fall 2014 19th Century Philosophy

This course provides an introduction to 19th Century Philosophy, with a focus on the distinctive theme of criticism. We consider Hegel's criticisms of our natural conceptions of freedom and religion; Marx's criticisms of capitalism and its ideology; Kierkegaard's criticisms of aesthetic, ethical, and rational lives; Nietzsche's criticism of Christianity and its morality; and Freud's criticisms of civilization and religion. By comparing and evaluating these powerful and influential criticisms, we will be able to assess the tradition of philosophy in the 19th Century.
