Philosophy for the 21st Cent

Spring 2020

Taught By: Pedro Mauricio Garcia Dotto

Section: A

CRN: 5202

Credits: 3

In this course we examine the prospects for fashioning a radically new philosophical understanding of the world and our place within it. In contrast to the anthropocentric models of the modern period, we search for another system of coordinates based on a broader ecological awareness and attention to both the human and non-human world around us. Drawing concepts from philosophers such as Baruch Spinoza, Gilles Deleuze, Susan James, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Noam Chomsky, Bruno Latour, and others, we attempt to unravel and analyze the metaphysical, ethical, and political forces of the present with the tools of imagination and reason.
