Kojeve Reading Group

This term Fred Aspbury will be leading a staff-student reading group.

We will be reading Alexandre Kojeve's seminal text 'An Introduction to the Reading of Hegel'.

This is a very important text in the history of 20th century western philosophy - Satre, Merleua-Ponty and Lacan - amongst others - all being significantly influenced by it. It was also used in the latter part of the last century to justify the western triumphalism the followed the collapse of the Berlin Wall.

These sesssions should appeal to all those who are thinking of continuing with philosophy in some form after graduation.

The first session will take place on Weds Feb 16th, 1-2.30 pm, in 215.

Hopefully we will see quite a few of your there.
