An Introduction to Schopenhauer

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Gramercy 30 Irving Pl, New York, New York 10003

The Worst of All Possible Worlds: an Introduction to Schopenhauer Arthur Schopenhauer is a true oddity in the history of philosophy. Although a great metaphysical systematizer in the tradition of Leibniz and Hegel, Schopenhauer posed a worldview entirely antithetical to the “optimism” characteristic of traditional Western philosophizing. Whereas...

Philosophy of History

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

Does history have a direction, a purpose, or an end goal? Can we deduce general historical patterns from studying the past? Is it naïve to hope and work for a better future? From the Enlightenment to the twenty-first century, liberal, Marxist, positivist, and post-structuralist thinkers have offered radically different responses to these fundamental...

What is Analytic Philosophy?

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

In the early 20th century, a new generation of thinkers came to believe that European philosophy had reached a dead end. Reacting to what they held was the obfuscatory language and non-sensical direction of post-Kantian philosophy, Cambridge philosophers Bertrand Russell and G.E. Moore set out to revolutionize philosophy through a fundamental rethinking...

The Good, the Bad, and the Evil

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Brooklyn 68 Jay St, Brooklyn, New York 11201

The Good, the Bad, and the Evil: an Introduction to Moral Philosophy Why should we be good? What makes an action moral—and how can we know? If an act is moral here and now, is it necessarily moral there and then? Is goodness in some way connected to happiness? And, what constitutes a moral judgment—is it an exercise of reason, or merely an expression...

Philosophy & Deconstruction: An Introduction to Derrida

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

The arrival of Jacques Derrida’s work lit the American intellectual landscape ablaze. For many American academics and critics in the 1970s and thereafter, the charismatic Algerian-born Derrida was the face of “French Theory,” and virtually synonymous with postmodernism itself. With his enigmatic prose and seemingly esoteric approach to language,...

Jacques Lacan: The Desire of the Other

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

Jacques Lacan always insisted that he was a thoroughgoing Freudian—perhaps the most orthodox Freudian of them all. A larger-than-life provocateur, Lacan’s oracular lectures and clinical innovations (including the notorious “short session”) ultimately led to his excommunication from the International Psychoanalytic Association. Yet, despite...

Kant’s Critical Aesthetics

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Financial District 75 Broad St, New York, New York 10004

Art was anything but peripheral to Kant’s philosophical project. In judging a thing to be beautiful, Kant maintained, we bridge “the great gulf” of nature and human freedom, and prepare ourselves to “love something, even nature, without interest”—that is, exercise moral judgment. Immensely influential in its time, the so-called “third...

Living a Luminous Life

at New York Open Center - Flatiron 22 E 30th St, New York, New York 10016

We are all aware of the impact of sunlight on plant growth and development, but few of us know that a plant actually “sees” where light is emanating from and positions itself to be in optimal alignment with light.
