Modern European Cultural History
Selected Web Links

Course Description

History 427 explores, through a study of the lives and works of selected thinkers, writers, and artists, the European cultural tradition from the Renaissance to the present.  Since these representative individuals, together with the works they created, not only were influenced by their times but also imparted to those times a unique character, they have been grouped, into broadly defined periods, each with its own identity, its so-called “climate of opinion” or Weltanschauung.  By the close of the semester, each student should have gained an overview of the European cultural tradition, an appreciation for the personalities and achievements of a number of important thinkers, writers, artists, and architects, and an understanding of the various stages through which the European mind has moved from the Renaissance to the present.
