Philosophy (PHIL) - History of Modern Philosophy

PHIL 3335  History of Modern Philosophy


PHIL 1116 and PHIL 1117


Three hours of lecture per week.




The main insights of rationalist and empiricist philosophy are surveyed, followed by sustained examination of the subsequent philosophical arguments for a strong affinity between the rational and the empirical. The work of selected early modern philosophers (e.g., Descartes, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume) will lead into the study of Kant, Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche. Special emphasis is given throughout the course to the definition, role and development of reason as seen from the perspectives of key philosophers of the period.
