PHIL 435J - Philosophy of Self and Other

3 cr.

(Prerequisites: PHIL 120  and PHIL 210 )

This course examines the way in which contemporary philosophy challenges modern conceptions of subjectivity by developing more fluid versions of the self. It also explores the emphasis in postmodern philosophy on the “other” (“alterity”), both human and divine, dealing with such themes as “the call,” the stranger, hospitality, and justice.
