Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
Goal 06 - Humanities/Fine Arts
  • Demonstrate awareness of the scope and variety of works in the arts and humanities.
  • Understand those works as expressions of individual and human values within an historical and social context.
  • Respond critically to works in the arts and humanities.
  • Articulate an informed personal reaction to works in the arts and humanities.

Description
This course concentrates on the period of time in which what people call "the modern world view" was formed. With the dawn of modern science, the centuries old grip of Aristotle and the Church was broken and replaced by a fundamentally new philosophy that was responsive to the new science and assisted in its defense. We will study selected thinkers of the period from the 16th to the 19th centuries: Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, and others. The course also pays attention to the role of race, gender and colonialism in the thought of these philosophers.
