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.

ESOL L1 Intermediate

This is the level at which you start to be a competent English speaker and writer. You can now communicate quite easily in your daily life especially in practical issues. But you need to develop your language to talk and write about more complicated subjects and to help you with your work. On this course, you will focus on reading more challenging texts and writing about them. You will learn how to make a presentation, write formally and informally, and by the end of the course you will understand and use accurately the most common English grammar.

Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop

Explore a range of techniques to start creating jewellery with silver clay, a versatile material that is fun to use to create solid silver jewellery from home. You will learn how to shape, refine and complete your own unique silver jewellery pieces. Silver clay is a clever material, made from particles of pure silver mixed with a binder to form a clay like substance that can be modelled, carved and moulded, then refined and fired to burn away the binder, leaving a pure solid silver item. It gives more options for jewellers to bring their ideas to life and requires fewer large and specialist tools so is more practical to work with at home than traditional metalwork. Ideal for complete beginners and those with some other jewellery experience wishing to broaden their skills. If you would like enrol at the concession rate, please request and complete your enrolment by contacting: MWEnquiries@marywardcentre.ac.uk or calling 020 7269 6000 Mon-Fri

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.

Tudor London

In 1500 the population of London was some 50,000 people. By 1600 this had increased to 200,000. Immigration, rapid population growth, and the concomitant expansion of the city were defining features of Tudor London. But Londoners also had to accommodate a new ruling dynasty, two succession crises, four extreme changes in religion, the novelty of two queens regnant, various rebellions, and the expansion of international trade. This course will examine many of the defining political, social, religious, cultural, and demographic aspects of London between 1485 and 1603, locating the metropolis at the heart of Tudor history and, when appropriate, at the heart of European life, too. We will assess lots of primary sources, including printed texts and images.

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.

Stuart London

When James VI of Scotland became James I of England in 1603, he travelled south to London to live in what was still essentially a medieval city. A century later London had been transformed into one of the key centres of the Enlightenment. In the interim it had experienced the hardship of civil war, the ravages of the Great Plague, and the devastation of the Great Fire. In the second half of the Stuart age, much of London was rebuilt by luminaries such as Sir Christopher Wren, Robert Hooke and Nicholas Hawksmoor. At the same time startling intellectual and cultural developments included the founding of the Royal Society, the appearance of coffee houses and Molly Houses, and the expansion of the press and the book trade. Contemporaries were well aware that they were living through a time of radical change: some people embraced this, others had misgivings. This course wil examine many of the defining political, social, religious, cultural, and demographic aspects of seventeenth-century London, locating the metropolis at the heart of Stuart history. We will assess lots of primary sources, including printed texts and images.
