PHIL 2278 Ethics, Existentialism, and the Good Life (Summer: 3 )
Think through life’s great questions while immersed in the work and world of Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), the father of existentialism and Denmark’s most famous (and strangest) philosopher and theologian. Writing in a highly personal and passionate way, no thinker in history has included so much of himself and his city in his books. Much of Kierkegaard’s Copenhagen still exists as it did in his day. By confronting Kierkegaard’s thought in its historical and cultural context, students will be challenged to think through these questions for themselves.
