Prerequisite: 10 credits, including 1.0 credit of second-year liberal studies (including 0.5 VISC credit).
This course is a study of the short stories, poetry, film, visual art and philosophical essays which have been generated from, or significantly influenced by, the philosophy of existentialism. In identifying some of the chief issues, notable works and leading figures in the movement, students gain an appreciation of the "existential" approach to modern culture, one characterized by the preeminence of critical protest.
