College Of Arts And Sciences | Rebels With and Without A Cause
E103 | 0056 | Mickel, E.


This course will be set within the shadow of Romanticism, an
eighteenth and nineteenth century movement that has been defined as
revolutionary in all its aspects: social, political, philosophical
and artistic. Scholars often explain the dramatic change in western
civilization as the result of religious, scientific and philosophical
changes begun in the Renaissance and brought to full fruition in the
eighteenth and nineteenth century. We will explore the philosophical
and theological roots of this rebellion in antiquity.
