Description

Elecitve Course
This seminar will introduce students to modern European revolutions and different ways of analyzing and understanding them. Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy’s theory of revolutions will play a key role in illuminating why some men start to fight while others keep quiet. The guiding questions are: What kind of factors contribute to the outbreak of a revolution and what are the differences between revolutions, uprisings, rebellions, civil wars etc? Last but not least, this course will enable students to understand why Europe is not a universe but a pluriverse in social and cultural terms.
