PHL204 Modern Philosophy: From Hegel to Heidegger and/or Frege to Wittgenstein
[3–0, 3 cr.]
Two variants of the course will be offered to reflect recent realities. The first variant of the course traces a development from Hegel through Marx, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche into 20th century Phenomenology and Existentialism. The second variant of the course will look at the work of Frege and Russell, and some of their influential 20th century successors. Within the second variant, special attention will be given to Wittgenstein, who was a unique and unclassifiable thinker of great importance.
