The intellectual and cultural traditions of modernity
7.5 ECTS credits
The course provides a survey of the intellectual, spiritual and material distinguishing features of modern society. Some of its characteristic institutions, traditions, lifestyles, beliefs and cultural expressions are treated in the context of a wider global and historical context. What does it mean to be modern (and implicitly non-modern, premodern and postmodern)? What has modernity meant for the understanding of time, space, the human being, knowledge, art, power and the Other? The concepts of modernisation, modernism, postmodernism and post colonialism are also treated critically.
