Strangers to Ourselves: an Introduction to Freud

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

In the process of investigating and treating the enigmatic disorder known as “hysteria,” Sigmund Freud established the discipline of psychoanalysis—and by so doing, profoundly altered Western subjectivity.

Where is Your 'Right Now'? The Philosophy of History

at Think Olio - Brooklyn SoHo Loft -- TBA (details will be sent thru email), Brooklyn, New York 10128

This is a four-part Olio seminar on the philosophy of history. While history is the study of the past, the philosophy of history is a study of how we study the past. Stated differently, the philosophy of history interrogates the historical imagination, and asks us to question why we believe the past is worthy of our attention. In my mind, it is literally...

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 of History

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

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...

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. This phenomenon is not just occurring in the plant kingdom—humans are also fundamentally directed by light, the same light that spiritual...

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...

What is Analytic Philosophy?

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...

Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit

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

It is difficult to imagine a more ambitious or even hubristic philosophy than that of G.W.F. Hegel. Even Hegel’s most contemptuous critics agreed with his faithful disciples on one count: he simply could not be ignored. It is hardly an exaggeration to say that much of 19th Century European intellectual history is a story about those who were with...

at Think Olio - Greenwich Village 828 Broadway, New York, New York 10003

Time appears as one of these concepts impossible to define, nor to perceive as such. Augustine writes, “What then is time? If no one asks me, I know; if I want to explain it to a questioner, I do not know”. Indeed, though impossible to deny its existence, since it seems to be part of the necessary framework (with space) in which we can perceive...
