PHIL 341J - The Subject & Medieval Thought

3 cr.
Using Umberto Eco’s novel The Name of the Rose as a guide, along with primary medieval texts, this course investigates the rise of the subject as the focal point of medieval metaphysics, epistemology, and political theory.  We will trace the historical development of our modern notion of the subject and subjectivity as rooted in medieval debates.
