Kant’s Critique of Judgment: Art and Aesthetics

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Brooklyn
558 St. Johns Place, Brooklyn, New York 11238

Kant’s aesthetic theory, expounded in the Critique of the Power of Judgment, was the capstone on his “critical” philosophy—it was intended to give completeness to his system as a whole.

“Goldman Sachs doesn’t care if you raise chickens,” Jodi Dean once quipped.

Jacques Derrida: Deconstruction and Difference

Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Gramercy
30 Irving Pl, New York, New York 10003

It is difficult to imagine a more ambitious or even hubristic philosophy than that of G.W.F. Hegel.  Filled with the revolutionary fervor of the turn of the 19th century, Hegel no doubt viewed himself as the messianic figure that he, along with Schelling and Hölderlin, had prophesied earlier while seminarians and roommates at the Tübinger Stift....
