PHIL 127OC - Being Together: Philosophies of Society and Sociality

FC ARHU
4 credits
Social philosophy is the systematic working-out of our curiosities about the nature and existence of social phenomena. In this course we will be interested in causal accounts of how social things and social capacities come about, ontological accounts of the fundamental nature of social reality, and normative accounts of what society ought or ought not to be like. In addition to surveying pertinent recent literature in social philosophy, this course will serve as an introduction to the work of some of the great social theorists, such as Weber, Durkheim, Simmel, Marx, and Engels. This course is part of a StudiOC Learning Community entitled “On Being Social Beings”.
Does this course require off campus field trips? Yes
