The purposes of this course are the following:
- To survey the elements and historical implications of alienation, estrangement and the rise of subcultures as they exist in the multi-cultural, pluralistic 20th century civilization.
- To isolate, through readings in Philosophy, Chicano and Afro-American history and literature some expressions of alienation and estrangement and roots of a sub-cultural identity as they may apply to the individual in the United States of America.
- To find some indices for measuring personal identification in the mass society or to find the sources of personal estrangement, alienation and "cult" (sub-cultural) identity. This will be done through reading, careful reflection and the formulation of a critique of the expressions of alienation, estrangement, and societally-viewed deviancy.
