Intermediate Philosophy Part 1 : Reason and Unreason

It is not uncommon to hear today calls for a defence of and a return to Enlightenment values: but what exactly were they? The flourishing of the natural sciences from the 17th Century onward brought about not just an entirely new conception of the nature of the world but also a radical rethinking of the nature of reason itself, which in turn had profound implications for our understanding of the self and of society. But rather than a celebration of the serene progress of triumphant reason, the Enlightenment itself might be better understood as a series of crises. We will explore the myriad of issues these developments raise through an examination of the great thinkers of the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries.

Hegel - Phenomenology Of Spirit: Part 1

This is an online course. Do we need to secure our claims of knowledge before understanding what is absolutely true? How do we know what we know? What is the relation between our consciousness and the external world? Is the process of knowing immediate or mediated? Who is free in the master-slave relation? What is an ethical act in relation to the state? What does the death of Christ reveal to us? What is absolute knowing? G.W.F. Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit seeks address these questions through an examination of the development of self-consciousness and the cultural-historical forms it takes in what he calls 'spirit'. This is Hegel's most revolutionary text, and has influenced all subsequent philosophy, Marxism, feminism, anti-colonial theory, existentialism, and postmodernism.

Advanced Philosophy: Adorno

Is Odysseus the prototype of the bourgeois individual? Has the Enlightenment destroyed the cultural need for myths? Is there a connection between instrumental reason and the rise of Nazism? What is the thinker's role in society? Is philosophy obsolete? What does art have to teach us? Is the jazz produced by Tin Pan Alley in 1930s ideologically problematic? Is thinking and feeling possible after the Holocaust? Is there a correlation between the way we open and shut doors and fascism? Theodor W. Adorno's (1903-1969) extensive body of work examines all these questions and more. In this course we will cover the major writings of Adorno, exploring the different facets of his thinking.

Epic Poetry:The Illiad

This is an on-line course. The Iliad is more than 2,500 years old, and yet it remains startlingly relevant today. It transports us to the final year of the Trojan War, and the catastrophic consequences of an argument between Greek warriors Agamemnon and Achilles. Homer's epic poem still speaks clearly about the horrors of war, but it deals with many other themes besides, such as the impact of war on the women and children who remain at home, and the ever-present role of the gods in archaic society. This course explores the poem in all its complexity, horror and beauty.

Introduction to Anthropology

A famous social anthropologist once described his job as being a sort of cross-cultural private eye, spying into people's cultures instead of their bedrooms! Anthropologists look at very different societies, often finding different solutions to common human problems, for example the problem of how to obtain food or how to raise children, or how to explain sickness or understand what happens after death. Discovering these differences (or similarities) is fascinating and brings us to the essence of Anthropology - it makes us stand back and question our own assumptions. It shows that almost no piece of human behaviour is either natural or 'inevitable'. On this course we will examine some of the ways people think and act in different cultures, including our own.

Intermediate Philosophy Part 2: Nihilism, Phenomenology and Existentialism

One unexpected outcome of the Enlightenment period was the rise of nihilism, a crisis of finding any real meaning in the emerging scientific worldview. The development of the new philosophical movement of phenomenology can be seen as, in part, a response to this crisis. Husserl sought to analyse the role of consciousness in constituting meaning in experience in a way which united our daily experience of the world with the scientific world view. The approach he developed was swiftly challenged in the name of a more embodied and historically situated account of meaning by the work of Heidegger, de Beauvoir, Sartre and Merleau-Ponty. This course will explore how the emergence of phenomenology as a philosophical method came to be inextricably linked to the wider issue of Existentialism as a response to the urgent problems of the 20th Century.

Literature, Art And Material Culture In Europe: The Lyric Thread

The course will explore the literature, art, and material culture of Europe, with reference to eight key literary texts: The surviving poems of Sappho; Ovids Amores; Petrarchs Canzoniere; Shakespeares sonnets; the secular poems of John Donne; the poems of Goethe; Wordsworths Lyrical Ballads; and Walter Scotts The Lady of the Lake. It will focus on the influence that each of these texts had on those that followed; and on the complex and changing inter-relationships between literature, the visual and performing arts, and material culture in European culture and society.

Everyday Anthropology: The Strange And The Familiar

'Anthropology demands the open-mindedness with which one must look and listen...' (Margaret Mead). Anthropologists investigate how people think and behave in different cultures and societies across the world. They do this by living among them, perhaps for a year or more, while recording their findings systematically and non-judgmentally. These often challenge our commonplace assumptions about life, perhaps subverting conventional wisdom as a result. Find out how anthropologists' discoveries can enhance your everyday perceptions of what makes human beings tick.

Hegel - Phenomenology Of Spirit: Part 2

This a online course. Do we need to secure our claims of knowledge before understanding what is absolutely true? How do we know what we know? What is the relation between our consciousness and the external world? Is the process of knowing immediate or mediated? Who is free in the master-slave relation? What is an ethical act in relation to the state? What does the death of Christ reveal to us? What is absolute knowing? G.W.F. Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit seeks address these questions through an examination of the development of self-consciousness and the cultural-historical forms it takes in what he calls 'spirit'. This is Hegel's most revolutionary text, and has influenced all subsequent philosophy, Marxism, feminism, anti-colonial theory, existentialism, and postmodernism.

New: Looking At Storytelling - An Anthropological Perspective

The seanchai were traditional Irish keepers of story, travelling from village to village, telling old stories about ancient lore and wisdom as well as local news. One Irish storyteller explained the recent resurgence of storytelling like this: 'It's a need for connection.. I think storytelling nurtures connections with people in real life' (National Geographic 24/1/20). We use stories to make sense of our world and to share that understanding with others; we also use stories to understand other people's worlds. Elif Shafak writes about the power of stories to bring us together, and she emphasises their importance in fighting against dehumanisation of the 'other': 'It is easier to make sweeping generalisations about others if we know close to nothing about them.. The art of storytelling is one of our last democratic spaces. Now it must become one of our main acts of resistance against dehumanisation' (Guardian 13/8/20). What sorts of stories are told in different times and places? What happens when stories are untold or unheard? How are the stories we listen to chosen? Who does the choosing? We'll investigate these and other questions with an emphasis on discussion, sharing ideas based on the cross-cultural material provided in class as well as our own individual experiences.

Norse Mythology

What is Ragnarok? Do Thor and Loki really hate each other? And why are Vikings never off the telly? This course looks behind the pop-culture versions of the Norse Myths to get as close as we can to the sources of our knowledge. Through readings of the strange and witty 'Eddas' written down in thirteenth-century Iceland, accompanied by images from Viking-age picture stones and rune stones, and tales of ship burials, we will get to know gods and goddesses, monsters and heroes, and discover why these old tales still speak powerfully to us today.

This course will explore the intense political and religious strife in England that began with Henry VII's break with Rome and continued until the Glorious Revolution.

This course will examine important themes of the turmoil, such as the ways in which royal authority was contested; plots and conspiracies; rebellions; and the circulation of news and false news. This is an interdisciplinary course that will blend political, social, and cultural history, and the history of ideas, and the history of the book.

Advanced Philosophy: Kierkegaard

Kierkegaard fears that in the modern world people are giving up what it means to be a self in the profound sense of ethical integrity and spiritual depth. He says, 'a self is the last thing the world cares about and the most dangerous thing of all for a person to show signs of having. The greatest hazard of all, losing the self, can occur very quietly in the world, as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss - an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc. - is sure to be noticed.' According to Kierkegaard, the loss of a self leads to all manner of social, political, and ethical injustices - in short, it leads to despair. In this course we will examine Kierkegaard's existential philosophy of becoming an authentic 'self' ready to meet one's social responsibilities with ethical and spiritual integrity. We will explore Kierkegaard's double approach: to understand what causes people to lose a sense of self and to understand how to become a self in the Kierkegaardian sense.

Epic Poetry:The Odyssey

This is an on-line course. How well do we know the tale of the long wanderings of Odysseus as he returned home from the Trojan War? In this course we will accompany Odysseus through the text of Homer's Odyssey, as he encounters awesome cyclopes, intimidating goddesses, enchanting nymphs, lotus eaters, and the shades of the dead. Reading Emily Wilson's celebrated new translation, we will consider how the epic poem was created, and how it has been received, as we explore the eternal fascination of the myth. This course provides an opportunity to get to know one of the most important stories in Western literature. We will explore the creation of Greek epic poetry, and its transmission and reception from ancient times to the present. We will consider some of the great themes evoked by the Odyssey, including attitudes to home, hospitality to strangers, the status of women, and the horrors of war. Along the way, we will hear some of the most compelling, thought-provoking and fantastic stories of Odysseus' long journey home, giving you a rounded view of the significance of Homer's epic.

Upper Intermediate Philosophy: Feminist Philosophy

Second Wave Feminism, which in the Western world can loosely be dated from the 1960s into the 1980s, is a contested project whose implications have not yet been fully realised. Moving beyond the demands for suffrage and political representation associated with the first wave, the second wave sought to interrogate the reality of women's lives to their very core, from family life to sexuality, biology to feminist metaphysics. Among its main conceptual and practical concerns were the meaning of patriarchy, the limits to equality, consciousness-raising, sexual emancipation and the possibility of women-centred living of multiple kinds. Discussion of core texts will be structured in such a way as to bring the debates to life in the present. No previous study of this topic is necessary for you to engage with the course.

Intermediate Philosophy Part 3: Society, Language and Difference

Philosophy in the second half of the 20th century was faced with the demands of formulating an adequate response to the world after the second world war: the rise of different forms of totalitarianism, the horrors of the war itself and the role of technology in bringing this about became urgent issues. We will examine two forms of response to this situation. Firstly, we will examine how Critical Theory attempted to explain and move beyond the social contradictions that had been laid bare during this period. Following on from this, the question of the place of language in our relations with the world came to a central focus of attention, giving birth to the ideas of structuralism and post-structuralism. In this part of the course we will engage with the work of Lacan, Derrida, Foucault and Deleuze.

New: Class, Money And Humour: Paths Into Anthropology

'Cultural anthropology is...valuable because it is constantly rediscovering the normal...' (Edward Sapir). Anthropologists investigate how people think and behave in different cultures and societies across the world. They do this by living among them, perhaps for a year or more, while recording their findings systematically and non-judgmentally. These often challenge our assumptions about life, perhaps subverting conventional wisdom as a result. Let an anthropological perspective widen your perceptions about social class, money, and humour.

Hegel - Phenomenology Of Spirit: Part 3

This is an online course. Do we need to secure our claims of knowledge before understanding what is absolutely true? How do we know what we know? What is the relation between our consciousness and the external world? Is the process of knowing immediate or mediated? Who is free in the master-slave relation? What is an ethical act in relation to the state? What does the death of Christ reveal to us? What is absolute knowing? G.W.F. Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit seeks address these questions through an examination of the development of self-consciousness and the cultural-historical forms it takes in what he calls 'spirit'. This is Hegel's most revolutionary text, and has influenced all subsequent philosophy, Marxism, feminism, anti-colonial theory, existentialism, and postmodernism.

An Anthropological Perspective on Current Events and Issues

In this course we will examine many of the ways different cultures have thought about, presented and decorated the body. From tattooing to scarring to plastic surgery and Botox these different practices have much to tell us about how humans have experienced and expressed notions of identity, belonging, beauty and selfhood. By examining a range of case study examples, you will be able to develop your knowledge of anthropological research methods, concepts and theories, but, as always the emphasis on this course is on how we can come to learn to apply the anthropological perspective to our own way of life and in so doing make the familiar become new and strange to us.

The Urban Wanderer

From the London-based tales of Poe, Woolf and Machen, and the Parisian flânerie of Baudelaire, to the 'psychogeography' of contemporary cities, the city has been the site of many poetic or visionary walks. We will read some of the authors who have explored the modern city (including Iain Sinclair, Nick Papadimitriou, Laura Grace Ford, and Esther Kinsky) and share their peculiar discoveries. Is the literary walk an act of re-enchantment of the world? Can it be a political gesture against the privatisation of public space? What makes the simple act of walking so powerful?

Advanced Philosophy: Cybernatics and Society

In the 1940s in America and the UK a scientific revolution took place under the banner of 'cybernetics', an umbrella science of 'communication and control in animal and machine' whose axioms, models and inventions would come to structure our age. The internet, the ultimate cybernetic machine, binds societies together while ripping them apart and ensnaring them in mass surveillance. Machine learning is promising the emergence of a supra-human form of intelligence rooted in the signature cybernetic analogy of computer and brain, as well as the mass automation of human labour, or `cybernation' as activists in the 1960s called it. 'Cyber' names the newest pillar of warfare. Earth system science conceives of our planet cybernetically as an immensely complex network of feedback loops that are becoming rapidly unstable: climate change. French philosopher Gilbert Simondon called the founding text of cybernetics 'a new Discourse on Method' while Martin Heidegger declared it to be 'the end of metaphysics'. No one can deny the influence of cybernetics upon our age, though few would claim to grasp it directly, let alone philosophically. This course provides an opportunity to do so. To grasp the way the foundational texts and concepts of cybernetics structure a particular way of constituting our world and also of understanding it as such.

Epic Poetry: The Aeneid

This is an on-line course. Virgil's Aeneid is the epic poem of Imperial Rome, with its roots in the Greek models of Homer's epics.
