The City in Reality

Fall 2019

Taught By: Arnold Klein

Section: A

CRN: 1436

Credits: 3

Students dissatisfied with, or suspicious of treatments of identity in terms of conventional categories may be gratified to learn of a philosophical and artistic tradition that treats individuality in terms of specific temperaments and circumstances. In this course we examine philosophical arguments, dramatic and lyric poems, autobiographies, artworks and films that present a complexity of selfhood when conceived in purely individual terms. Works have included Mill's Autobiography, De Quincey's Confessions, Walden, and Fellini's 8 1/2.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisites: first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture.
