New: The Philosophy Of Jean-Paul Sarte

Everyone knows Sartres name and the movement of Existentialist philosophy he inspired, but how many have actually read his major tome Being and Nothingness (1943)? This course presents you with the opportunity to read and discuss the book from start to finish over 12 weeks. Starting with a discussion of his early work on Husserl and phenomenology, the course will then dive into Sartres central theories about nothingness, freedom, bad faith, temporality, the gaze, sexuality and resistance to oppression. Along the way, we will assess Sartres influence on Lacan, Deleuze and Badiou, and look ahead to the emergence of Marxist Existentialism in Sartres later, underrated classic, the Critique of Dialectical Reason (1960).

New: Advanced European Philosophy

This year we will focus our investigations on the Frankfurt School/Critical Theory and its influence on contemporary philosophy. The emphasis will be on aesthetics and ethics/politics as we investigate 2nd generation Frankfurt School through a study of the work of Habermas and Marcuse, their influence on thinkers like Nancy and Zizek, and the importance of these ideas in relation to our complex contemporary world. Participants should have extensive previous experience of studying European philosophy and enjoy a detailed reading of difficult texts combined with collaborative discussion.
