PHI 111 - Philosophy and the Holocaust

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Philosophical perspectives on the Holocaust. The first half of the course examines what it means to represent the Holocaust, including epistemological and cultural issues about how to come to terms with the event. The second half of the course focuses upon understanding the Holocaust, especially ethical issues such as whether the Holocaust was a unique event; whether “evil” is a meaningful category to describe it; if so, how should one define this evil?; does the Holocaust reveal limitations in traditional and/or all moral theory?
