HST340 Topics in the History of Ideas

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course offers students a glimpse into the exiting world of intellectual history. It can either immerse the students into the intellectual tenor of a particular period through a discussion of this age’s interplay between history, philosophy, theology, literature and the arts. Or it can survey the history of a particular set of ideas, or an ideology. Students will engage primarily with primary sources, thus providing them with a firsthand feel for the history of ideas.
