Courses for Fall 2013: Freshman Seminar: Reading the Brothers Karamazov As an Answer to Electronic Isolation
Dreyfus’ research and teaching interests bridge the analytic and Continental traditions in 20th century philosophy, focusing on Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty as possible responses to the nihilism of the present age. His teaching has included an interdisciplinary Discovery Course on the understanding of being manifest in various kinds of technology. Dreyfus teaches at least one course each semester. His courses are available as podcasts.
