PHI 401 Senior Seminar in the History of Philosophy

3 hours 

This course is an advanced seminar in the history of philosophy. While focusing on a particular historical period, tradition, question, issue, or figure, the course will also address broader methodological questions in the scholarship of the history of philosophy, as well as relevant critical responses and alternative perspectives from within and without the tradition. Students will read intensively in both primary and secondary texts, conduct a research project appropriate to the subject, and complete a seminar paper on the model of the philosophical journal article that presents the results.
