 Philosophies of Modern Life

Spring Term 2018, Tuesdays, 17:00 – 19:00, ten weeks starting 16th January

Course Tutor: John Holroyd.

What ideas about human nature and how best to live, lie under the surface of modern western culture and its multi-cultures? We shall explore a range of ideologies that to a lesser or greater extent make up the ebb and flow of our conversation about these questions including aspects of Enlightenment philosophy, Marxism, evolutionary psychology, existentialism and some of Charles Taylor’s writings. Finally we shall examine some contrasting philosophies of multiculturalism including the views of Will Kymlicka and Martha Nussbaum.
