Subject Area: Philosophy

This course provides you with an in-depth engagement with one or more major figures in the German philosophical tradition. Topics may include: desire, human existence, freedom, truth, language, the conditions of knowledge and the nature of self-consciousness. By their treatments of these topics thinkers such as Hegel, Heidegger and the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory have significantly reshaped philosophical debate: they remain central points of orientation, illumination and provocation in how to make sense of fundamental aspects of contemporary life and society. They are inescapable points of reference for developing your understanding of contemporary European thought.
