Course Description

This course will concentrate on a close reading of a single major text or set of small texts on ethics in the so-called “continental” tradition. The text will be read slowly in open seminar format, at time even line by line. Likely authors from year to year include Nietzsche, Scheler, Ricoeur, Levinas, etc. The course has two aims: (1) investigate and evaluate themes, questions and methods involved in this approach to ethics; (2) improve facility with critical reading.
