Critical Paradigms

This course covers advanced philosophical paradigms, leading students through the key ideas and advanced texts associated with them, covering topics such as Critical Theory, Semiology and Semiotics, Hermeneutics, Psychoanalysis and Deconstruction, Automation, Artificial Intelligence, and Algorithmic Design.

For each paradigm, students will examine the theoretical presuppositions at work and consider several prominent exemplars of the approach. The focus throughout is on how these various critical approaches are applied to textual, cultural, and historical materials in contemporary scholarship - and how they may be combined with one another in mutually illuminating ways.
