PHIL 224.001 – Existential Philosophy and the Meaning(lessness) of Life
Instructor: Aaron Thieme. This course meets MTWRF 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in CW 103 via in-person instruction.
In this course we study some existentialist themes from a philosophical perspective. In particular, we will consider perennial topics such as the meaningfulness of life, the significance of death, and the implications of God’s nonexistence. We will read some classic, mid-twentieth century Francophone literature and some more recent Anglophone philosophical work on these topics.
