This wiki is being collaboratively constructed by students and for students as a resource for contemporary philosophy courses at Rockhurst University. Here students will write about philosophers, philosophical movements and issues, and the historical context to which the philosophers were responding. The goal is not to cover each topic exhaustively but to provide an understanding of key ideas that will aid fellow students in their comprehension of the thinkers and issues addressed in class.The courses contributing to this collaborative project include at the moment are Twentieth Century Continental Philosophy, Phenomenology, Existentialism, Philosophy of Technology, and Philosophical Approaches to Intersubjectivity.




You can find the guidelines for the wiki project here.
