Russian Philosophy | Dominican University College

Russian Philosophy

The main objective of this course is to introduce the students to some of the main figures in Russian philosophy from 18th to 20th Century. The course is structured both chronologically and thematically. We will familiarize ourselves with Russian philosophers from different epochs, as well as from different philosophical and intellectual traditions, such as Slavophiles and Westernizers, Existentialists and Revolutionaries, Nihilists and Philosophers of Language. In learning about the different schools of thought, we will draw parallels with Western philosophical traditions. No preliminary and prerequisite knowledge of any Western or non-Western philosophical tradition is needed for this course. We will start with the Russian Socrates and end with a reflection on some of the post-communist political and philosophical currents of Russia.
