PHIL2648 - German Philosophy, Leibniz to Nietzsche
Semester 1, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
This unit surveys German Philosophy from Leibniz via Kant and the German idealists to Nietzsche. The first half of the unit examines the main aspects of Kant's "Copernican revolution" as a response to Leibniz's "monadology". The second half examines extensions and transformations of Kant's philosophy by critical appropriators extending from Fichte to Nietzsche. Throughout, the philosophical views involved will be related more generally to questions of science, morals and politics, art, education, and religion.
