PHIL7838 - Romanticism as Philosophy

Semester 2, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Paul Redding


Besides the romantic sensibility pervading many distinct areas of 19th century European culture, a distinctly philosophical variant of romanticism has recently been acknowledged. This unit examines versions of philosophical romanticism commencing in the 1790s to the present, interpreting and evaluating them as responses to what has been perceived as the nihilistic consequences of social and psychological changes typical of the modern world. The links of philosophical romanticism to romantic movements in the arts, politics, science and religion will be examined.
