PHL 258 The Authentic Self: Augustine, Kierkegaard, 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. Focus on works of Augustine, Kierkegaard, and Heidegger.
