RUSS 37 Western Thought and the Russian Dialogic Imagination

This course is a study of the relationship between Western philosophy and Russian literature, specifically the many ways in which abstract philosophical ideas get ‘translated’ into literary works.  Russia does not have world famous philosophers.  We have Solovyev, Rozanov, and Berdyaev, but very few of our colleagues at philosophy departments in the United States would recognize them and fewer still would have anything to say about them. Yet, most Russian writers were avid readers of philosophy and are often considered philosophers in their own right.

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.
