Description

What does it mean to be human? How can we find meaning in our lives? How can we maintain our selfhood? A brief account of Nietzsche, Marx, and Freud as “the masters of suspicion” sets the stage for this course’s inquiry into whether the self is anything but various fragmented relations of power and desire, and whether it is at all possible to construct some small space within which an “authentic” self might dwell. The lectures present us with a range of philosophical narratives about how that self might be constructed and understood. Twentieth-century philosophers examined in these lectures include Heidegger, Sartre, Marcuse, Habermas, Foucault, Derrida, and Baudrillard.
