What is Neoliberalism?

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Murray Hill 275 Madison Ave St #2114, New York, New York 10016

Although long used in everything from policy discussion in international institutions to economic and business analysis to academic studies in politics, economics, and far beyond, the concept of “neoliberalism” has recently become a subject of extreme controversy. Some claim that no such thing exists—it’s merely an epithet containing no meaningful...

An Introduction to Schopenhauer

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

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...

Numbers: History, Mathematics, Philosophy

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

Numbers are so common, so seemingly intrinsic to human life, that it’s baffling to recall that, for millennia, many humans did not use them at all. How, then, did the use of numbers come to be? Were they, in some sense, discovered? Are they qualities of the natural world or truths outside of time and space? Or, are numbers human creations—concepts...

The Fear of Leisure

at Think Olio - Greenpoint 113 Franklin St, Brooklyn, New York 11222

Laziness is what we call a thick concept in philosophy: both descriptive, and evaluative. When we call a person lazy, we are not merely trying to objectively pick out a factual behavior. We are judging and indeed, blaming that person's behavior. After exploring bits of history around the idea of laziness and its conceptual cousins like sloth, idleness,...

Mozart: Music, Enlightenment, and the Sublime

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

If Mozart is one of the best-known figures in Western classical music, he is also, oddly, one of the most elusive. Admirers from his time to ours, while agreeing on his stature, have disagreed about almost everything else—to Wagner he was the “genius of light and love”; to Kierkegaard a musical apostle of the demonic. He has been claimed on...
