PHIL 16.03 Hegel and Marx

This course concerns two towering figures of the nineteenth century, Hegel and Marx. Our goal is to explore their contrasting views of modern society, especially the modern market economy. We begin with Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, an attempt to show that modern society promotes human freedom. We then turn to Marx’s Paris Manuscripts and Capital, considering his case for the revolutionary overthrow of this society. Topics discussed along the way may include private property, individual rights, human nature, alienation, exploitation, civil society, democracy, false consciousness, and ideology critique.

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.
