PHI 250 - Philosophy of Love and Sexuality

Course Cross-listed with GS 250 
3 credit(s)
This course offers a critical analysis of the concept of sex and love, particularly as it has developed in the Western philosophic tradition. It explores sex and love as a defining element of human life, even in that “all too human” desire to step beyond ourselves. The role of sex and love is explored through various themes, like the acquisition of knowledge (as an ideal of truth), its place within religious life, and its stakes in ethical and political community. Students gain an understanding of determinate theoretical methods, like phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and critical social theory.
Prerequisite(s): PHI 110  or GS 100 .
