German 364

The Idealist Revolution and Beyond

Full course for one semester. This seminar explores German Idealism’s unparalleled influence on the study of literature and the arts. Whether the topic is lyric poetry, mass culture, or the theory of history, scarcely anybody in today’s humanities proceeds without some engagement—implicit or explicit, positive or negative, intentional or unwitting—with the forms and figures of thought we find in Kant and his inheritors. Conducted in English. Students may arrange with the instructor to take the class for German credit. Prerequisite: sophomore standing. Conference. Cross-listed as Literature 364. Not offered 2006-07.
