 Philosophers of Otherness 1: Levinas, Foucault, Lacan

‘We are all responsible for everyone else – but I am more responsible than all the others’ wrote Dostoyevsky. We will explore the ideas of three major contemporary thinkers for whom the character of our existence is truly defined by our relations with others. The course will introduce the three figures by focusing on close reading of one seminal text by each of them. We will begin with Totality and Infinity (1961) by Emmanuel Levinas; then examine The History of Sexuality, Volume 1 (1978) by Michel Foucault; and conclude by studying Jacques Lacan’s Ecrits (1966).

Spring Term 2017, Mondays, 19:00 – 21:00, ten weeks starting 16th January.
