Environmental Philosophy Readings


Resources for Naturalism / Phenomenology Seminar

Naturalism

Phenomenology

Resources for Existentialism Seminar

  • Sartre, Existentialism and Human Emotions (Let's make this a baseline text for everyone.)
  • Nietzsche, especially Thus Spake Zarathustra. Scan of chapter on Nietzsche from Kaufman, "Nietzsche"
  • Camus, stories.
  • Usually reference and secondary sources. Good oppotunity to "shelf browse" existentialism: B819 in Foley, but then figures may be in other places.
