The goal of this course is to explore the thought of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud by way of their most famous concepts. Notions such as “commodity fetishism,” “alienation,” “will to power,” “geneaology,” “the unconscious,” “repression,” and many others have become part of ordinary (intellectual) language yet are often used vaguely and without a clear sense of their provenance and conceptual implications. In this course, we will go back to their original articulations in the work of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud in order to gain a clearer picture of both our own critical vocabulary and the theories of these thinkers.
