Course Code: RGT2726H







Regis College

Course Description

The 19th century was a time of great political and intellectual ferment. In particular, it was the century in which Europeans came to develop a keen sense of historical consciousness. Come find out how Hegel, Kierkegaard, Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche and Freud forever changed the way we look at the world. Themes to be considered include history, human nature, morality, religion and God.



We will also focus on the problem of how the different academic disciplines are related to one another. We will consider each thinker’s ideas in their historical context and in light of their implications for contemporary culture and for our own thinking.
