HNRS 2406 is an interdisciplinary course that explores European conceptions of the individual and the world during the eventful period between the Renaissance and the French Revolution. HNRS 2406 will expand and deepen the knowledge students have acquired in HNRS 2000, Critical Analysis, by uncovering the historical and philosophical “back story” of contemporary debates that are shaping life in our time. Classes will generally be divided into 1) a brief lecture by one or both of the instructors on the day’s text, followed by 2) text-based discussion and debate.
