Reading the Iliad

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

The Iliad stands at the start of most histories of western literature, even as it remains enduringly strange—often, it seems, at odds with the very tradition it has been taken to inaugurate.  In our course, we will attempt to recapture some of the strangeness and some of the continuing relevance of the Iliad. We will closely...

Imaginary Numbers: Theory, Mathematics, and Possibility

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

The very idea of imaginary numbers appears at first glance preposterous, like something out of science fiction or the wildest philosophy. A real or ordinary number multiplied by an “imaginary unit” somehow mathematically produces a “complex” number that has both theoretical and practical applications. Rene Descartes, who coined the “imaginary”...

Psychoanalysis and Politics

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

Psychoanalysis is often called “revolutionary,” with its dethronement of human pretensions to self-mastery drawing comparisons to the innovations of Copernicus and Darwin. But, if psychoanalysis produced a revolution in knowledge, what has it meant for politics? Is psychoanalysis an inherently political enterprise? Do its insights into the unconscious...

Proust in Time: Time Regained

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

In Time Regained—the final, unfinished volume of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time—World War I is inescapable. Proust’s magnum opus, begun in 1913, already bore the scars of modernity, but the War sounded the death knell of the rarified life he had known in his childhood. Yet, Time Regained is not merely about nostalgia or loss, even...

Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research -

Kant’s publication of the Critique of Pure Reason was a seismic event in the history of western philosophy, whose effects continue to be felt today. Enacting a “Copernican Revolution” in philosophy, Kant subjected reason itself to critique—attempting to answer the question: how do we know things at all? What structures and categories does...

Why do we want what we want? The critique of capitalism is very often associated – by both proponents and antagonists – with a critique of consumerism which, in turn, is treated as a pathology of individual desire.
