The Golden Century of German Philosophy

636 TUTOR: Darren Harper (BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing, PGCE)

A flowering in philosophy occurred between the 1790s and the 1880s in the German-speaking world, equal in the apex of thought to that of the ancient Greeks. This began with Kant, was augmented by Schopenhauer, before Nietzsche assailed the whole of existing morality. This course will explore the wealth of ideas produced by these philosophers.
