MUS 46 Video Games and the Meaning of Life

Video Games and the Meaning of Life is an interdisciplinary course that explores the philosophies, epistemologies, and praxis of the human condition via the music, narrative, and design of U.S. and Japanese digital games—from the marvels of mundanity (Nietzsche and Harvest Moon) to the perils of obedience (Arendt and The Stanley Parable), from metaphors of illness (Susan Sontag and That Dragon, Cancer) to the transnational rise of today’s billion-dollar e-Sports industry.
