GRMN 386 - Literature, Science, and Culture in Germany, 1700-1850

Fall (3) Leventhal Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing. (College 200, ALV)

This course deals with the emergence of the life sciences and the "sciences of man" (anthropology, philology, and political economy) in German speaking territories at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century, and the differentiation of such disciplines as zoology, biology, botany, physiology, comparative anatomy and chemistry from "natural history and philosophy." While the human and life sciences are given special emphasis, the developments in math and physics (Bernoulli, Euler) in this era will also be studied. (This course is anchored in the ALV domain, and also considers aspects of the CSI and NQR domains.)
