PHI 148 - Philosophy in America

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course examines distinctive American philosophical movements (e.g., pragmatism), distinctive American themes (e.g., optimism; individualism and community; spiritual and religious themes, as for example, in response to evolutionary theory; legal positivism; American feminism), and developments with a distinctively American emphasis in ethics (e.g., care ethics) or politics (e.g., neoliberalism, cosmopolitanism). The course may also consider the extent to which philosophy in America is a reflection of American culture while at the same time offering a unique perspective on perennial philosophical problems. Specific topics and focus may vary.
