University of Vermont (Burlington, VT 05405-0160)
Alex Michael Zakaras (Project Director: November 2008 to July 2012)
Individualism and Its Dangers (course title)

A one-semester seminar to be offered at least twice, to undergraduates, on the problem of individualism and its dangers.

I am proposing to develop a course for first-year undergraduates at the University of Vermont. The course is pre-disciplinary and addresses several questions of enduring moral and political importance: Which forms of individualism, if any, are worth aspiring to? What are their dangers? And which forms should be resisted?
