at Think Olio - Ridgewood
56-06 Cooper Ave, New York, New York 11385

One might break into their offices and steal their...

An Introduction to the Tarot

at New York Open Center - Flatiron
22 E 30th St, New York, New York 10016

The Tarot, ostensibly a deck of decorated cards, is in fact a symbolic system whose images express Pythagorean, Platonic and Hermetic mystical ideas. Once one grasps the Tarot’s philosophy and structure, the cards can be used as an intuitive device to connect with one’s inner wisdom. In this class we will study the symbolism of the Tarot as its...

Philosophy of History

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Midtown
247 West 37th St 5th Fl, New York, New York 10018

Does history have a direction, a purpose, or an end goal? Can we deduce general historical patterns from studying the past? Is it naïve to hope and work for a better future? From the Enlightenment to the twenty-first century, liberal, Marxist, positivist, and post-structuralist thinkers have offered radically different responses to these fundamental...

Reading and Ridiculing "The Languages of Art"

at Think Olio - Ridgewood
56-06 Cooper Ave, New York, New York 11385

"Aesthetics is to artists as ornithology is to birds."  See why Barnett Newman's quote is right (though it doesn't have to be). Nelson Goodman (1906-1998) was an American analytic philosopher who wrote on epistemology, logic, and aesthetics. But aesthetics has always been the red-headed stepchild in philosophy, never gaining acceptance in the...

Art and Affect

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Midtown
247 West 37th St 5th Fl, New York, New York 10018

This course will delve into the ways that art has been alternately defined as antidote to and instigator of affect from the postwar period to today. We will start by surveying a critical tradition that heralds distanced viewing and cognitive understanding as the most desired and politically responsible experience that art can provoke, marginalizing...

Introduction to Freud

at Brooklyn Institute for Social Research - Greenpoint
126 Franklin St, Brooklyn, New York 11222

In the late nineteenth century, Sigmund Freud discovered psychoanalysis in his attempts to treat hysteria — the enigmatic illness known to the Western mind for over 2,000 years. By insisting that bodily symptoms represented unconscious conflict, the Freudian revolution destabilized longstanding social and philosophical biases that privileged consciousness,...
