PHL 213 - Introduction to Existentialism


4 credits
Examines major works and thinkers in the history of the existentialist philosophical and literary traditions.  The central focus of this course is the human condition, or the nature of human existence.  We will ask and find ways of responding to the following questions: “does human nature have an essence?,” what is the nature of “freedom?,” “is reality absurd?,” “what makes life meaningful?,” “what role does death play in the constitution of meaning?,” “are humans responsible for their existence?”
Grade mode designated on a CRN basis each term. Students should consult current term schedule.
