Two main lines of thought characterize twentieth-century continental philosophy: the decentering of the subject and the linguistic turn. Both take shape in different ways in the most important philosophical traditions of this period: phenomenology, existentialism, hermeneutics, critical theory, poststructuralism and philosophy of difference. In this course, these traditions will be discussed, and texts will be read of the most important philosophers of this age:

1. Phenomenology: Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty
2. Existentialism: Sartre
3. Hermeneutics: Gadamer
4. Critical theory / Frankfurter Schule: Adorno
5. Poststructuralism: Foucault, Butler
6. Deconstruction and philosophy of difference: Derrida, Deleuze.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
