PHL 414 - Sigmund Freud: Then and Now (4 Cr.)

(PHL 314) (GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies)
This course will present a comprehensive, historically sensitive, and theoretically (as opposed to clincally or practically) oriented overview of the thought of Sigmund Freud, especially his views on human agency, consciousness, and morality; sexuality; sociality; religion/Judaism; violence; human rationality; and history. The course will conclude with a consideration of the ways in which Freud’s thought has influenced contemporary critical theory, and some possible figures we may read in dialogue with Freud include Theodor W. Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, or Judith Butler. Prerequisite: one course in philosophy or permission of the instructor.
