Heidegger: Truth, Technology, and Poetry

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Gramercy 30 Irving Pl, New York, New York 10003

Sometime in the early 1930’s, Heidegger’s thought is supposed to have undergone a change.

Kant’s Critical Aesthetics

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research

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...

Friedrich Nietzsche: Art, Conflict, and Morality

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Brooklyn 68 Jay St, Brooklyn, New York 11201

Many European thinkers idealized the ancient Greeks as virtuous models of a rational, dignified, and harmonious way of life, one they very much wished to emulate and create anew in the Modern world.
