Online Philosophy Seminars
First One on Hume's Aesthetics, April 28 at 11am Eastern Time
I’ll be leading a two hour online seminar (via Zoom, limited to 20 people maximum) on Hume's "Of the Standard of Taste" on April 28 at 11am Eastern Time. You can register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/seminar-on-humes-of-the-standard-of-taste-tickets-323455011647
I’ll go over some background as well, including the Earl of Shaftesbury, Francis Hutcheson, and Kant. You can listen to our Partially Examined Life episode on this here: https://partiallyexaminedlife.com/2022/03/14/ep289-1-aesthetic-sense-theory-shaftesbury-hutcheson-hume/
Depending on how much demand there is for this sort of thing, in a few weeks I’ll advertise a 14 week course, possibly on Hegel’s Phenomenology.
If you're interested in future seminars (there seems to be a lot of interest in me doing a course on Hegel), please let me know what times work best for you using this link: http://whenisgood.net/wgfmf8p
I'd also appreciate some feedback by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to the following questions:
What topics interest you? (In philosophy, psychoanalysis, literature, film--feel free to link to syllabi).
What balance of lecturing and group discussion are you looking for? Are you hoping to mostly be silent while I give a lecture? Or would you rather minimal lecturing with almost all group discussion? Something in between? How active would you be in a group discussion?
What's your ideal class length?
What's your ideal class size?
What's a fair per-class price?
Can you commit to a 14 week course? Are you more interested in one-off seminars?
Would you mind if I made audio recordings of classes and shared some of them online behind a paywall? Or would that dissuade you from attending/talking?
