The tumultuous 20th century was a period of rapid change, both socially, politically, and scientifically. It’s not surprising then that philosophy too underwent some drastic changes, in order to make sense of changing world around it. In this class, we survey some of the key developments in philosophy in the 20th century, including (but not limited to) the rise of analytic philosophy and the development of continental philosophy. Students can expect to cover such thinkers as Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, and others. This class is suitable for both beginners and improvers.
