Seminar: The Greeks and Modernity, hosted by Michael McGettigan, ABD Reading recommendation: Schmitt pp. 324-332,277-287. Let us begin with further eidetic variations of our noetic exercises. We will then finish the preliminary discussion of the perception, opinion, and knowledge. We want to be clear: perception, opinion and knowledge are not three levels of knowing the SAME object. No! They each have their own object corresponding to them. Then we will see how the ancients never made the mistake of separating…

Also, given how punchy this translation is, it'll be more readable/comprehensible for many.)

What is Post-Structuralism?

November 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Goose Hollow Inn, 1927 SW Jefferson St
Portland, OR 97201 us

Assigned reading: Chapter 5 of The Order of Things by Michel Foucault. Structuralism is the methodology that seeks to understand human behavior and events through systems that arose in sociology, anthropology, and linguistics in the early twentieth century as a parallel to existentialism in Europe. Post-structuralism, by extension, can be considered the continuation or rejection of this movement.

Seminar: The Greeks and Modernity

November 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Triumph Coffee, 201 SE 12th Ave
Portland, OR 97214 us
+ Google Map

Seminar: The Greeks and Modernity, hosted by Michael McGettigan, ABD Reading recommendation: Schmitt pp. 288-303. We will see how the ancients never made the mistake of separating reason and feeling. That is why for the Greeks one can not only misjudge, but misfeel. There is an order to feeling. Human beings ARE knowledge. They don't "have" a mind. They are not inhabited by a "soul." Mind and soul, in their contemporary meanings, are distorted renderings of knowledge. We are knowledge.…
