PHIL 215 - Kant and the 19th Century


We study the philosophical legacy of Kant in the evolutionary philosophies of the nineteenth century.  We ask what it is to philosophize in the context of cosmic and cultural evolution, in which thought and its concepts evolve.  We consider rival versions of the claim that the development of consciousness, freedom, and rationality is the final purpose of the world.  Readings will be selected from Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel, Marx, and Peirce.

Prerequisites: PHIL 143 .

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered periodically
