- European Philosophy II: The 20th and 21st Centuries
|Coordinator(s)||Adrian Walsh (email@example.com)|
This unit traces the development of European philosophy in the 20th Century and into the 21st, starting with the existential approach of Heidegger and moving on to the subsequent developments in France associated with Sartre and Merleau-Ponty. As well as Phenomenology and Existentialism, it will explore later movements such as Hermeneutics, Structuralism/Post-structuralism and Post-modernist thought, through such figures as Derrida and Foucault. It will also explore the parallel development of Feminist philosophies within the European tradition, with a focus on the French philosophers de Beauvoir and Irigaray. Themes discussed will include the nature of Being, its relation to language and interpretation, the historicity and contingency of human life, and the nature of oppression.
