51-3450 Topics in Philosophy


Anger is a fundamental part of the human condition. Its causes are varied and its expressions are diverse, but we all experience some form of anger. Philosophers have perennially tried to understand anger and find some way to manage its destructive power. Some pacifists argue for the elimination of anger, while others recognize its motivational energy for social justice issues. This course looks at philosophical ideas about anger, ranging over Eastern and Western traditions as well as Ancient and Modern eras. Some of the perspectives explored include Buddhism, Stoicism, Existentialism, Sociobiology, Postmodernism, Feminism, and more.
