COMPLIT 286: Forming the world: Pragmatism and Aesthetics (GERMAN 286)

This course will explore key pragmatist philosophical and theoretical approaches to literature, the visual arts, and music. How are human lives mediated by and through aesthetic experience, in the realm of the private as well as the public. Rather than positing a metaphysical idea of beauty, the thinkers and artists we engage ask how texts and artworks render us sensitive to our multifaceted contingencies, and how we may speak and write about them. Readings and viewings include R. W. Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Emily Dickinson, Martin Heidegger, John Dewey, T. W. Adorno, Hannah Arendt, Richard Rorty, Terrence Malick, J. M. Coetzee, Bruno Latour, Marilynne Robinson, Nancy Fraser, Rita Felski, Tania Bruguera, Yivve Citton, Richard Moose, Cheryl Misak, and Shannon Sullivan, among others.

EDUC 253: Foundations of Learning: From Ideas to Application

Education is one of the most contested spaces in American society today. But its public commentators draw on old debates in the texts of Plato, Rousseau, DuBois, Dewey and others. This course offers an opportunity to uncover the roots of current conversations about education and engage the classic works of educational philosophy, history, and humanities. We will discuss the texts, understand their ideas, and apply them to making grounded contributions to contemporary debates, policy direction, and strategic plans.
