Cosponsored by the Long Eighteenth Century and Romanticism Colloquium.
Dialectical Thinking in the Humanities, originally the Hegel Reading Group, explores the self-reflective style of thinking in humanistic disciplines. It does so by reading and discussing texts relevant to dialectical thought and by hosting speakers in topics on philosophy, literary theory, and the arts. This year we will read Theodor Adorno’s Aesthetic Theory, and works by the Continental Rationalists (Descartes, Spinoza, Malebranche, and Leibniz). We meet weekly on Tuesdays from 6-8pm.
