Kant’s Critical Aesthetics

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ 75 Broad St, New York, NY

Art was anything but peripheral to Kant’s philosophical project. In judging a thing to be beautiful, Kant maintained, we bridge “the great gulf” of nature and human freedom, and prepare ourselves to “love something, even nature, without interest”—that is, exercise moral judgment. Immensely influential in its time, the so-called “third Critique” inspired and gave energy to both German Idealism, which attempted to provide a rational...

The Good, the Bad, and the Evil

Your Opponent, Exposed.

Kabbalah Centre Student Support @ 3036 N Ashland, Chicago, IL

Have you ever noticed that doing what’s right (like exercising and being creative) is harder to do, but ultimately more fulfilling than doing what’s wrong (like smoking and lying around on the couch)? What is this gravitational force that pulls us toward mischief and lethargy? It is an oppositional force that exists in the world in order to give us the chance to earn fulfillment. It is a force that sets us up to step up so we can grow...

An Introduction to Schopenhauer

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research

The Worst of All Possible Worlds: an Introduction to Schopenhauer Arthur Schopenhauer is a true oddity in the history of philosophy. Although a great metaphysical systematizer in the tradition of Leibniz and Hegel, Schopenhauer posed a worldview entirely antithetical to the “optimism” characteristic of traditional Western philosophizing. Whereas for Leibniz ours is “the best of all possible worlds,” Schopenhauer insisted that we are “not...

A Ruthless Criticism of Everything Existing: An Introduction to Marx

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

In the mid-nineteenth century, a young Karl Marx wrote, in the form of a published open letter to Arnold Ruge: “But if the designing of the future and the proclamation of ready-made solutions for all time is not our affair, then we realize all the more clearly what we have to accomplish in the present—I am speaking of a ruthless criticism of everything existing, ruthless in two senses: The criticism must not be afraid of its own conclusions,...

Stoicism: a Philosophical Introduction

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

“Do not seek to have events happen as you want them to, but instead want them to happen as they do happen, and your life will go well.” Taken from Epictetus’ Handbook, this maxim expresses a signature teaching of the ancient philosophy of Stoicism; it encapsulates Stoicism’s resolution to the problem of life’s turbulences, from sour emotions (the coffee shop is out of my favorite drink) to overweening grief (a loved one unexpectedly...
