READING GROUP: Sartre on Marxism

29 May

Sartre in his context.

READING GROUP:

This Spring we will be turning to the extensive corpus of Jean-Paul Sartre—who was once the public philosopher, but who has more recently become the third-rail of continental philosophy. We will be looking at a wide swath of his work, putting it into conversation with his many contemporaries—from his most well-known interlocutors (such as Simone de Beauvoir and Maurice Merleau-Ponty) to some of his lesser-known contemporaries (such as Trần Đức Thảo). Don’t miss our meetings most Tuesday evenings (8:00-10:00pm) on the INTERNET! (login information below in red).

This week:

  • June 2
    • Sartre, Jean-Paul. The Search for a Method. Chapter 1, “Marxism and Existentialism.”

READING GROUP: Fanon on Psychology

17 Apr

Sartre in his context.

Frantz Fanon / Black Skin, White Masks » Live From Planet EarthREADING GROUP:

This Spring we will be turning to the extensive corpus of Jean-Paul Sartre—who was once the public philosopher, but who has more recently become the third-rail of

continental philosophy. We will be looking at a wide swath of his work, putting it into conversation with his many contemporaries—from his most well-known interlocutors (such as Simone de Beauvoir and Maurice Merleau-Ponty) to some of his lesser-known contemporaries (such as Trần Đức Thảo). Don’t miss our meetings most Tuesday evenings (8:00-10:00pm) on the INTERNET! (login information below in red).

This week:

  • Apr 21
    • Fanon, Frantz. The Wretched of the Earth, Chapter 5.
    • Optional/recommended; Fanon, Frantz. Decolonializing Madness. Chapter 1.

Pdfs of the readings can be found: HERE

Please bring either a digital or hard copy of the text with you to the discussion.

Time: 8:00pm-10:00pm
