CPP 511 Existentialism and Personal Responsibility
Faculty: Ann-Marie Neale, PhD (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
The father of modern existentialism, Sartre is heralded as the philosopher of responsibility. He denies the existence of a guiding ethical principle outside of human experience and, therefore, every individual “is condemned to freedom.” In this course, his highly acclaimed book on human emotion is complemented by Morgan’s chapter which carefully explains Sartre’s system of thought which has so profoundly influenced western culture.
