Marx, Nietzsche, Freud
Same as POLSCI 378 except instruction is provided in two lectures and one small discussion meeting each week. Three principle sources of the twentieth (and now twenty-first) century: the insistence on an ultimate convergence of (revolutionary) theory and practice; the phenomenon of nihilism and the challenge of overcoming it; the exploration of the hidden foundations of the self and of culture. A critical examination and assessment of the thought of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud. One course.
