Course Description


"Who am I?" This question pervades literature, a corollary to "Who are you?" and "What does that   have to do with me?" We will explore these questions by investigating together how a variety of authors, from different eras and facing different challenges, have defined the "self,” and addressed problems of consciousness, ethics, and self-expression.


Required Supplies: Plato, "Allegory of the Cave" [excerpt of Republic]. Shakespeare, Hamlet. Borges, "The Other" [anthologized in The Book of Sand]. Kang, The Vegetarian. Butler, "Nonviolence, Grievability, and the Critique of Individualism". All texts available on amazon. Many can be found in local bookstores.

English Proficiency Requirements

Continuing Education Programs

Continuing Education (CE) courses and programs offered online through LSU Online & Continuing Education typically include a combination of lecture and discussion as well as reading and writing assignments. You need an adequate command of English in all skill areas (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) to participate in classes.

If English is not your native language, you must meet one of the English language proficiency requirements below to be successful in our CE programs. If you intend to register for a CE course or program, you can determine whether you meet English proficiency requirements by self-assessment prior to enrolling. We want to empower you, the learner, to progress successfully. Completing this self-assessment will enable you to make a good decision on whether you can complete one of our programs.

Intermediate English Skills

Most CE professional development courses and programs require at least intermediate English skills, which are equivalent to a B2 level of English language proficiency on the Self-Assessment Form. When assessing yourself, be sure to read through each of the categories under Column B2 to make sure you meet proficiency requirements.

Advanced English Skills

Online Distance Learning courses and microcreds are for-credit courses and might require more advanced English skills, equivalent to a C1 level on the Learner Self-Assessment Form. Be sure to read through each of the categories under Column C1 to make sure you meet proficiency requirements.
