PHL 200: Existentialism

Does life have meaning? Can values exist if God does not? This course considers the works of central existentialist figures such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Sartre and Camus as well as related literary works. It addresses such themes as authentic existence, freedom, nihilism, meaning, subjectivity and values. The course is both an introduction to this body of work and an attempt to raise individual awareness of the human condition within which our existence takes place.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”
