(More) Philosophy for Writers

All Levels | We will cover the language of limit subjects (metaphysics, being, death, God, humanness) from Gottfried Leibniz, William James, Donna Haraway, Kodwo Eshun, and Slavoj Zizek, as well as the films of Astra Taylor, a philosopher and director. 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.
