The last semester of Social Foundations examines major intellectual and historical events from the Enlightenment and the Qing dynasty (around 1700) to the contemporary world. This period has seen some of the most rapid and significant changes in human society and scientific understanding. At the same time many of the enduring questions of humanity have become even more critical as disparate cultures interact in a new global arena. This course is a cap to the Foundations sequence; accordingly, authors and themes come from a range of texts both interdisciplinary and international.
