Marx, Nietzsche, Freud

Fall 2020
Tue, Tue
04:30 pm – 05:50 pm

An introduction to the thought of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud. Organized thematically rather than chronologically, the course will bring these thinkers into dialogue on six themes: interpretation, history, subjectivity, politics, religion, and art. By concentrating on such pivotal issues, it seeks not only to delineate the origins of much modern thought, but also to develop resources for reflecting on our contemporary moment.
