COMPLIT 334A: Concepts of Modernity I: Nihilism (COMPLIT 273B, FRENCH 373A, ILAC 334A, ITALIAN 373, MTL 334A)

In the 1885 Preface to his unfinished work The Will to Power, Nietzsche declared: "For some time now, our whole European culture has been moving as toward a catastrophe, restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that wants to reach the end, that no longer reflects, that is afraid to reflect." Nietzsche called the movement "nihilism." This course will reflect on major theories of nihilism as a way of reflecting on the conceptual foundations of modernity. Authors include: Kant, Hegel, Leopardi, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Simone Weil, Emile Cioran, Aimé Césaire, Monica Sjöö & Barbara Mor, and Mark Fisher
