PhilosophyPHIL 109 Poststructuralism and After

The three major poststructuralist philosophers are Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, and Gilles Deleuze. After studying their rejection of phenomenological accounts of consciousness and agency—as well as their program for studying power, bio-power, multiplicity, difference, and repetition,—current critics , such as Slavoj Zizek and Judith Butler, are also read for contrast between the methods of phenomenology, genealogy, and critical theory.
