PHIL 16.01 Self-Consciousness in German Idealism

Our theories of action and knowledge are condemned to fail if they are not guided by a philosophically fundamental inquiry into the nature of self-consciousness.  Kant maintains a modest version of this thesis.  Fichte and Hegel make it the key to their ambitious systematic philosophies.  This course aims to isolate and evaluate the basic insights that animate German Idealism.

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.
