PHIL 360 Existentialism

3 Credits

This historical and thematic study of the 19th- to 20th-century philosophical movement known as Existentialism includes such themes as freedom, anxiety, death, the absurd, and the value of the individual against the crowd or mass society. These themes are discussed in the context of the thought of influential existentialist philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Sartre.  The course aims to enhance the student’s abilities to think critically and reflectively.  Through study of a variety of existentialist approaches, students will explore the meaning of self and society, and reflect on the compatibility of faith and reason with specific reference to the Catholic Franciscan intellectual and spiritual tradition. 

Prerequisite(s): PHIL 102  and THEO 104  and a minimum of 55 earned credits.
