 Nietzsche, Freud and Heidegger on Violence

Summer Term 2017, Tuesdays, 19:00 – 21:00, ten weeks starting 24th April

Course Tutor: Keith Barrett.

There is an alternative history (yet to be written) of Western philosophy as a response to the problem of violence. We will examine the inception of both Ancient and Modern Western philosophy from this perspective, then study the problem of violence as it emerges as a theme – or remains tantalizingly beneath the surface – in the work of three great contemporary theorists of the human condition; Nietzsche, Freud and Heidegger. The course will be informed by contemporary philosophical perspectives on violence – especially those of Foucault, Girard and Zizek.
