Continuation of HONR 1015. Key developments and trajectories in human thought and inquiry into modern times.
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to seminal works from the post-classical period. By course's end, students will be able to identify basic problems, questions, and themes that recur in our readings and guide their debates. In addition, students will be able to effectively analyze the texts within which these problems, questions, and themes are developed and debated. Over the course of the semester, students will also cultivate their capacity to synthesize disparate arguments and to evaluate and critique claims encountered in our readings. Most of all—most fundamentally— students will learn to think deeply and seriously about the essential dynamics of modernity.
