PH 105 Human Nature Seminar
Human Nature Seminar: Love and Death:
Love and Death define the human condition as, perhaps, no other pair of concepts can. What is this thing called love and how is it a response to what Camus calls the cruel mathematics of human mortality? This course examines the basic problems of philosophy by looking at human nature and how it fits into nature as a whole. It attempts to answer the questions 'What am I?', 'What am I doing here?', and 'How do I fit in?'. We concentrate on the problem of how our subjective view of ourselves (how it feels to be us from the inside) fits into our objective conception of the universe, as viewed from the outside. In particular, we will be interested in how philosophic theories concerning humanity and nature arose from the tension between the objective and subjective viewpoints, the struggle between love and death.
