Philosophy of History

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?

Philosophy of Mind: Thinking and Consciousness

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

What is the relationship between the mind and the brain? Is the mind a reducible, physical system, or is there anything more to consciousness? It’s often taken for granted that the human mind is a kind of computer (and that, similarly, computers can “think,” know, and learn much as humans do). In more classical thought, the mind was frequently regarded as independent of the body, a thing associated with an incorporeal “soul.” But how seriously...

Walking and Philosophy: Thinking in Motion

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

How does an activity as simple as walking become emblematic of an age—or a school of philosophy? From the wandering peripatetic of ancient Greece to the paradigmatic urban wanderer of 19th century Europe—the flâneur, a boulevard stroller immersed in the throng of human traffic—philosophers have been walking and thinking, alone or in among the crowd, amidst an asymmetrical organization of gazes, at once observing and being observed. The freedom—of...

Heidegger/Arendt: Philosophy, Influence, and Being

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger’s love affair is perhaps the most well-known, if not notorious, in modern Western letters. But, putting the more intimate aspects aside, how can we understand the intellectual connection, sometimes ardent, sometimes ambivalent, sometimes hostile that tied the two together for the majority of their adult lives—even after Heidegger’s turn to Nazism? In this course we will explore the affinities and differences...

Gershom Scholem: Mysticism & the Philosophy of History

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

Friend to Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt, Theodor Adorno, and Leo Strauss, Gershom Scholem may be the best known scholar of Jewish Studies in the 20th century. Above all he is associated with launching the modern academic study of Jewish mysticism. However, Scholem’s study of mysticism was only part of his much broader, and far more engaged and systematic thinking, about questions of contemporary politics and the Jewish historical condition. An...

Antonio Gramsci: Prison Notebooks

At Antonio Gramsci’s 1928 trial, the prosecutor famously demanded, “we must stop this brain working for twenty years!” Despite being imprisoned in rather brutal conditions by Mussolini’s fascist government, this goal was not achieved. Gramsci would produce, in the notes, scraps, fragments, commentaries, and essays, that constitute his so-called prison notebooks, his most famous thinking.
