Course Content Dr Patrick Quinn

This course examines some philosophers’ views on the following topics: Plotinus on speaking of the One, Hannah Arendt on human beings and terror, Simone Weil on detachment, Bertrand Russell on conflict, Immanuel Levinas’ concept of escape, Hans Georg Gadamer on poetry and punctuations and Mary Midgley on values. No previous knowledge of philosophy is necessary though it may be useful and class discussion is encouraged as a contribution to learning.
