PHL 258 Authentic Self: Augustine, Kierkegaard, and Heidegger (3 credits)

This course will center on careful textual study of primary sources in philosophy/theology that deal with the analysis of human "fallenness" and self-recovery. A key element that will emerge is the role of the will: not just the theoretical freedom of the will, but the necessity to make a specific act of the will, namely to will to be one’s authentic self. All three authors are major figures in and sources for the philosophical and theological traditions of the West. Satisfies third-level GER in Theology or Philosophy; GEP Philosophical Anthropology.
