Prof John Clarke The lifeworld: Continental Philosophy from Existentialism to Postmodernism

NEXT MEETING ON-LINE VIA ZOOM at 7:30pm on 21st November 2023

After the last talk in this series which was about 20th century philosophy in Britain from Bertrand Russell onwards, we cross the Channel to something (almost) completely different with a look at the rise of Existentialist philosophy of Heidegger and Sartre. the focus of which could be summed up as 'the lifeworld' with its emphasis on human freedom and the quest for meaning. Then we will look at reactions against this in the postmodern period which includes new feminist thinking and the deconstructive work of Foucault and Derrida.
