PHIL 230 - Kierkegaard


FDR: HU
Credits: 3
Planned Offering: Offered occasionally

What does it mean to exist as an authentic human being? This course explores diverse inquiries into this question by one of the 19th century's most challenging thinkers. We read from a variety of famous pseudonymous writings (including parts of Either/Or , Fear and Trembling , Philosophical Fragments , The Sickness Unto Death ), as well as some lesser-known works under his own name (Upbuilding Discourses, Works of Love ). In doing so, we not only follow Kierkegaard's literary and philosophical genius for displaying the intricacies and depths of aesthetic, ethical, and religious ways of living a human life, but we also deepen our own reflections on these matters -- and perhaps strengthen our grasp on authentic living as well.
