Heidegger: Being and Time

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

What is the meaning of being?

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?

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.

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.

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...

Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

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

There’s more than a little irony in the fact that Ludwig Wittgenstein—widely considered to be among the most original and influential philosophers of the 20th century—held that his discipline’s “real discovery” was “the one that makes me capable of stopping doing philosophy”. In his posthumously published masterpiece, ...

at Think Olio - Online Online Class, New York, New York 00000

This is a six-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.
