What is Analytic Philosophy?

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

In the early 20th century, a new generation of thinkers came to believe that European philosophy had reached a dead end.

Moore set out to revolutionize philosophy through a fundamental rethinking...

Jacques Lacan: The Desire of the Other

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

Jacques Lacan always insisted that he was a thoroughgoing Freudian—perhaps the most orthodox Freudian of them all. A larger-than-life provocateur, Lacan’s oracular lectures and clinical innovations (including the notorious “short session”) ultimately led to his excommunication from the International Psychoanalytic Association. Yet, despite...

Luce Irigaray: Philosophy, Psychoanalysis, and Sexual Difference In the wake of the publication of her landmark book Speculum of the Other Woman, which contains a scathing critique of Freud’s writing on female sexuality, the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan famously expelled Luce Irigaray from her position at the University of Paris Vincennes.

Humans and Culture: an Introduction to Anthropology

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

Anthropology is at once a contested and vital field of study and inquiry. Still hotly debated is a basic question: what is the scope of anthropological inquiry? Modern anthropologists no longer divide the world, as their 19th-century forebears did, into a sociological “West” and an anthropological “rest of the world,” its “backwardness”...

Philosophy & Deconstruction: An Introduction to Derrida

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

The arrival of Jacques Derrida’s work lit the American intellectual landscape ablaze. For many American academics and critics in the 1970s and thereafter, the charismatic Algerian-born Derrida was the face of “French Theory,” and virtually synonymous with postmodernism itself. With his enigmatic prose and seemingly esoteric approach to language,...

Giovanni Arrighi: The Long 20th Century

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Online Online, New York, New York 00000

Do recurring economic crises suggest that capitalism itself is in terminal decline?

Madness: Society and the Psyche

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

From the start, Western philosophy, literature, and medicine have been preoccupied—and haunted—with the figure of the mad and the idea of madness. What lies at the root of seemingly strange irruptions of emotion, speech, and erratic behavior? Do they arise by happenstance, or are they symptoms of disturbances in the body, the mind, the psyche,...
