Theories of Self-Consciousness in Classical German Philosophy (Kant, Fichte, Hegel)

PHIL 2190H S01 [CRN: 24368]

Theories of consciousness and self-consciousness play an important role in the philosophical systems of the main representatives of classical German philosophy. In particular Kant, Fichte and Hegel share the conviction that without a convincing understanding of consciousness and self-consciousness a coherent conception of both mental and physical reality is unattainable. The aim of the course is to look more closely into their approaches to this topic and to discuss critically the metaphysical, epistemological and psychological claims these philosophers connect with their respective views concerning consciousness and self-consciousness.
