Final Blog Post – Week 10

As you know, we will not be having section on Friday. In lieu of class, please write a blog post in which you respond to the following questions. This is very open ended; I want you to use it as an opportunity to reflect on the course material, and to think about how it has affected you as a thinker and person living in the “west.”

  1. Which perspective do you most agree with – the Enlightenment or Romanticism? (Or perhaps some combination of both)? Why?  
  2. How has learning about the Enlightenment and Romanticism impacted the way you view our contemporary western culture today?    
  3. In your view, what was the most interesting or important takeaway from this class?

Please include at least one media object or link, tag your post, and categorize for week 10.

Posts are due by Monday.
