Contemporary European Philosophy II (PHIL*6150)

Code and section: PHIL*6150*01

Term: Fall 2018

Instructor: John Russon


Contemporary European philosophy carries on a form of inquiry that has its most definitive roots in Kant’s “Critical” project of philosophy and that has some of its richest development in the great twentieth-century works of phenomenology.  We will study two of the most powerful and formative texts in this tradition of European philosophy, Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason and Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception.
