PHL 3153 - The Culture Critics

3 Credit Hour(s)
According to Martha Nussbaum, “philosophers ought to be lawyers for humanity.” This course focuses on select philosophers who have critically assessed the intellectual, moral, and political shortcomings of western culture in the modern era. Attention will also be given to the fact that while philosophers attack the ills of society they must protect themselves from corrosive forces at that same time. Select writings of Nietzsche, Foucault, Fukuyama, and other critics of culture will be discussed.
