PHIL 1.02 Existentialist Ethics

Inescapable freedom – this is what the existentialists held to be the mark of the human condition.  Despite this shared view, however, they each proposed distinct and novel ways of understanding this freedom and its ethical import. To uncover the richness of their analyses of the human condition, the class will explore the complexity of freedom through the lens of core existentialist topics such as radical responsibility, transcendence, nothingness, alterity, inter-subjectivity, finitude, and the absurd.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
