This seminar asks the question: What does it mean to act and think "after modernity?" The question is addressed through readings of those contemporary social and political theorists who were among the first to announce the death of the modern order and to articulate the contours of a new "postmodern" order. Issues to be investigated include the disintegration of the human subject, the retribalizing of the human community, and the impact of the communications revolution on political processes. Seminar: Three hours a week. 05-09-2018-28-11-2018 Seminar Monday, Wednesday 01:30PM - 02:45PM, Health Sciences Bldg, Room 103
