Course Catalog

(More) Philosophy for Writers

All Levels | We will cover the language of limit subjects (metaphysics, being, death, God, humanness) from Gottfried Leibniz, William James, George Eliot, Donna Haraway, Frantz Fanon, and Slavoj Zizek. We’ll examine these texts and images to grasp their key concepts and learn from their brilliant poetry and literary flair. This class, which combines reading with writing workshops, is recommended for poets and writers who want more poetry in their prose. It is intended for both those who have and those who have not taken a previous Philosophy for Writers course.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
