Teaching and Learning

Phi 410 Kierkegaard

submitted by apolloni@augsburg.edu

Missing in contemporary philosophy and thought is a recognition of something distinct from truths of reason and sense experience: spiritual truth. We will use the writings of Kierkegaard to discover whether there is such a thing and what it is. The course should be of interest to advanced philosophy and religion majors, and all juniors and seniors. Staff are also welcome. If interested please contact me: apolloni@augsburg.edu.
