“Get a Life!” and other Summer Updates

21 May

Enjoy your break? Good, cause it’s time to get back to work! And we are happy to offer some exciting programs to help you out:

  • First, on Sunday nights at 10:00pm (EST) during June, we will be discussing Deleuze’s Nietzsche and Philosophy at the Deleuze Online Reading Group. Each week will will discuss one chapter (roughly 35 pages). If you are interested in participating, feel free to email us at pittsburghphilosophy@gmail.com with any questions. A google+ link will be posted approx. 30mins before each event.
  • Second, the Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Reading Group will be reconveaning for an exiciting summer program in June. Much like last year, we will be undertaking a themed program for the summer. This year the theme will be“Get a Life!”. “What does it mean to be alive?”, “What do we mean by the word Life?”, “What does change have to do with living?”, are just some of the many questions that we will be considering through readings of Nietzsche, Bergson, Deleuze, Henry, and Massumi. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
  • Third, next thursday (i.e. not tomorrow, but the next one), Point Park’s Dr. McInerney will be presenting “A Phenomenological Account of the School Shooting Spree,” Thu, May 29, 6:00-7:00 at the JVH Auditorium at Point Park University.
  • Lastly, be sure to get in your abstracts for the first ever Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Conference next September. We have three kickin plenary addresses set up, and have already started recieving some promising abstracts; it is going to be a blast.
