Julia Bursten is an historian and philosopher of science specializing in the philosophy of the physical sciences. Her research investigates how theories and models are developed and deployed in nanoscience, with particular attention to how theories are adapted from other sciences to construct the first "science of a length scale. Her current projects include investigating the concept of a surface in nanoscience and applying the lessons of that investigation to a broader understanding of inter-theoretic relations across the physical sciences. Brandon Look works on early modern philosophy.
He has published numerous essays on Leibniz, Spinoza, Kant and other figures from the 17th-and 18th-centuries. In Spring , she is teaching a new introductory course, Philosophy, Law, and the Me Too Movement, aimed to help students understand topics of recent public discourse, including in their own lives, through their philosophical and legal dimensions. Eric Sanday is working on a monograph on the relationship between the nature of intelligibility, as addressed by Plato in dialogues such as the Parmenides , Statesman , and Philebus , and the account of what cannot be explained in terms of participation, focusing specifically on Plato's Timaeus.
His most recent article-length project is on the nature of justice, gender, and myth in Hesiod and Heraclitus. He is currently studying the work of those philosophers important to the formation of the phenomenological movement in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. He also has an abiding interest in environmental philosophy and is working out the idea of an existential ecology. In this project he takes Hans Jonas's existential interpretation of biological facts as cue but extends this to the ecological conception of land advanced by Aldo Leopold and others.
Additionally, he is author of The Husserl Page , the influential and oldest active web site devoted to the life and work of Edmund Husserl. Khader, and Alison Stone She also presented two commentaries and served as a panelist on a book at meetings of the American Philosophical Association. Of particular interest to us will be the theory of narrative argument offered by Walter Fisher in communication studies, although we will explore accounts of narrative from other disciplines as well.
In terms of myth, the course will focus primarily on the question of how myth and mythic narrative occur in rhetorical activity. Issues to be explored include the psychological foundations of myths particularly Jungian accounts , how mythic criticism might proceed, as well as critiques of mythic criticism from a variety of disciplines.
A note about our classroom environment. Since this is a seminar, I will run this class as a discussion among equals as much as I can. I will try to make it fun, engaging, and lighthearted. What this practically means is that I will often try to argue, refute, and confound your arguments and asserted claims as I would do to an academic colleague in a professional discussion. Do not take this personally. One does not learn boxing or pottery making by staring at a chalkboard, and one will only become better at making arguments though the experience of arguing.
Some of our discussions will be aimed at understanding a text and its arguments. But other significant parts of our discussion will be aimed at challenging, appropriating, or evaluating those arguments. This is done simply to get the most out of our engagement with primary sources that are all too easy to dismiss because of their temporal distance, our disciplinary habits, and so forth. This is also done to make you better at scholarly argument. Required Texts: Walter R.

For each class session save our first meeting , please prepare a reading response paper. These should be pages in length. I will not prepare discussion questions in advance of each class. Instead, I want you to begin to sense the important issues, tensions, and moves in each piece on your own. Your response paper can be your critical response to any part of the assigned reading s for that class. Another way to think of these would be as chances to argumentatively connect a topic in the reading to some other issue of interest to you.
I will evaluate these papers based upon their engagement with substantive points in the reading, as well as the depth of critical thought displayed. Argue something. Try to argue something interesting or important. Also, keep the sort of formal voice you would have in an academic piece—these are not article length pieces, but the sort of critical thinking and argument should be of the same cloth. There will be at most one student discussion leader per session. For that week, this student will not need to prepare a reading response paper. Instead, you will lead a 45 minute discussion presentation.
You will choose some subset of the assigned readings for that day, present your thoughts on it, and lead a discussion about it. Please bring copies of some sort of outline or summary of your presentation for your classmates.
It is fine if you want to link the reading s in question to larger concerns in rhetoric or to other class readings. Also be prepared to stimulate class discussion for a while. We will start the process of picking days for presentations in the first class session. Each student will write a research paper pages of text dealing with a significant issue relating to course content. This paper must include research outside of assigned course materials and must involve critical reflection and argument. You must inform me in a 2 page document of your proposed topic for feedback on its suitability.
This is your chance to further explore topics broached in class, or to link discussed ideas in myth or narrative to your own areas of study. More details concerning this assignment will follow in class. It would be a good idea to share drafts of your paper with your classmates to get their feedback, although I will not require this.
Ideally, your final paper should be ready for submission to a regional or national conference in communication studies. Do not feed habits of procrastination, they will turn on you. Using written work submitted in other courses is also not allowed.
