Final Philosophy and Horror Discussion: Richard Kearney

13 Dec


Reading group announcement: next Spring we will be seeking to unpack the notorious obfuscator Jacques Lacan — particularly as he has been picked up by philosophy — with a series entitled “Lacan Demystified.” Be sure to join us again on Monday nights starting in late January.

kearneyJoin us tomorrow (Monday) night at 8:00pm as we conclude our Fall series, “PHILOSOPHY and HORROR,” with a discussion of excerpts from Richard Kearney’s Strangers, Gods, and Monsters (chapter 4).

As always, the text is available as a pdf HERE.

We will be meeting at 3929 Cabinet Way, Pittsburgh (BYOB) until we can establish a more permanent location.

As a reminder, even though we have moved to thematic groups, there is no expectation that people participate in every week, so even if you can’t commit to the whole Fall, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.


None this week.
