Writing Philosophy

All Levels | This class will introduce writers to basic but brilliant metaphysical concepts in philosophy. It will focus on the works of Baruch Spinoza, Friedrich Nietzsche, Alfred North Whitehead, Hannah Arendt, Isabelle Stengers, and Gilles Deleuze. The texts examined in this class will not be difficult, and were picked not only for the depth of their ideas but more importantly for their poetry and literary flare. This class, which will combine reading with writing workshops, is recommended for poets and writers who want more poetry in their prose.
