Philosophy of Culture | Dominican University College

We live in a natural world, but culture is our intellectual home.  This course explores the concept of culture and its evolution from the Greek paideia to the Modern concept of culture.  Special attention will be paid to the works of Giambattista Vico, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Friedrich Nietzsche and Charles Taylor. Other issues such as multiculturalism, cultural relativism and post-modern culture will also be discussed.
