FYSP 152 - So You Want to be an Intellectual? A Roadmap to the Republic of Letters

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, WINT

Speaking truth to power: it is what public intellectuals do. But when, where, and how? Through what tools, skills, and venues? This course has three goals: to think about the role of the public intellectual today in light of its historical evolution; to become thoroughly familiar with the international republic of letters, where intellectuals communicate with each other and reach a general audience, and to begin thinking of ourselves as prospective citizens of that republic.
