Fall 2012 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
What if what you see as red is what I see as green? This course will not answer that question. It will, however, similarly consider the intricacies and complexities of ideas and practices that are generally taken for granted. Our studies will focus on how we as individuals are both constructed by and engaged in constructing the world around us. Readings will include major 19th-century thinkers such as Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche, as well as their 20th- and 21st-century inheritors. Theories will be illustrated with a variety of contemporary texts.
Books will be ordered at the on-campus store as well as at Off-Campus Books on Campbell Road.
Course Requirements/Evaluation Criteria:
Faithful attendance, careful and rigorous reading, regular writing assignments.
