Course Description

This course introduces students to the major intellectual currents and thinkers of the long nineteenth century. We will begin with both the Enlightenment, and move on to look at the challenges nineteenth century thinkers posed the limits of reason. As a course in intellectual history, it will at once concentrate on close reading of works by major thinkers, while also asking how intellectual trends relate to their historical contexts.
