Philosophy of History

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?

Narcissism: Pathology, Culture, and Politics

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

Do we live in an “Age of Narcissism,” or has vanity been with us always? Is narcissism necessarily pathological, or is it a structural feature of human subjectivity in general?

In this course, we’ll consider the origins of narcissism as a clinical concept alongside its function as a polemical term in modern...

Antonio Gramsci: Prison Notebooks

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

At Antonio Gramsci’s 1928 trial, the prosecutor famously demanded, “we must stop this brain working for twenty years!” Despite being imprisoned in rather brutal conditions by Mussolini’s fascist government, this goal was not achieved. Gramsci would produce, in the notes, scraps, fragments, commentaries, and essays, that constitute his so-called prison notebooks, his most famous thinking. Although the work covers tremendous ground—from...

Heidegger/Arendt: Philosophy, Influence, and Being

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger’s love affair is perhaps the most well-known, if not notorious, in modern Western letters. But, putting the more intimate aspects aside, how can we understand the intellectual connection, sometimes ardent, sometimes ambivalent, sometimes hostile that tied the two together for the majority of their adult lives—even after Heidegger’s turn to Nazism? In this course we will explore the affinities and differences...

Jean Paul Sartre: Being and Nothingness

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

For Jean-Paul Sartre, the fundamental philosophical problem of the modern age was how to respond to Friedrich Nietzsche’s dictum: god is dead, and so is, as a consequence, traditional western conceptions of morality, justice, and truth itself. In the cafes of occupied and post-war Paris, Sartre and his cohort of fellow existentialists attempted to meet Nietzsche’s challenge: to reimagine the basis of morality and value in a godless world. Very...
