PHI 295-03 - Special Topic: Theory and Praxis: Decolonial, Anti-Racist, and Feminist Perspectives on Revolutino

4 credits (Spring)
This course will introduce students to critical theory by examining how leading critical theorists have addressed questions related to theory and praxis. In particular, the course will focus on the importance of theory for social critique and for transformative social action. We begin with foundational texts of critical theory including Marx, Freud, Adorno, and Benjamin. We then turn to later interventions, including the critical race theory of Frantz Fanon, Bayard Rustin, and Angela Davis.
