PHIL 302 Monsterology: Cognition and Culture


The category “monster” disrupts the borders and boundaries of what we consider natural, normal, and even intelligible. Our rational systems of order are frequently upended by the monstrous. In this course we will examine the history and philosophy of monsters as they impact ethics, metaphysics, and epistemology. We will consider the role of monsters in cognition and knowledge, the ethical and political uses of monstrosity, the relation to personal identity, the problem of evil, and other perennial philosophical issues.
