1 175A/275A: This course in American Philosophy begins with an examination of John Locke’s creationist theory of natural rights, which posits entitlements to life, liberty and property, and an assessment of the role Locke’s ideas played in the American Revolution, the construction of its founding documents, and the struggle to abolish slavery and racial segregation.  We then turn to the growing popularity of Darwin’s theory of natural selection in the subsequent century and its consequences for the idea of God-given rights referenced in the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution.
2 296A: This seminar will focus on the nature of false consciousness and ideology.
3 296E: A seminar on the metaphysics of material objects.
