Hegel Reading Group: The Science of Logic
S2.73

We are a group dedicated to collectively reading the core works of the German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel (1770 – 1831). Our goal is to facilitate a better understanding of the often difficult contents of Hegel’s texts and to provide a forum for meaningful engagement between his thought and contemporary questions. Although we are primarily made up of postgraduate students working on Hegel, we happily welcome non-philosophers and beginners in Hegel’s philosophy to join us at any point. Term 1 and 2.

This term we will be working on the second part of Hegel's Science of Logic, the Doctrine of Essence. Please bring a copy of the book for the session. We will mainly use the Di Giovanni translation, but there are usually no problems if people bring other translations (Miller, etc.).

Philosophy Department Colloquium: Karen Simecek (Warwick)
OC1.07, Oculus Building

Title: 'Poetry, Affectivity and Self-Understanding'

ABSTRACT:

When thinking of affect and emotion, it is tempting to see this as a route to understanding and gaining knowledge of others. Literature on empathy, sympathy and the underlying mechanisms such as mirror neurons has blossomed in recent years, leading to an understanding of the emotions and affect as a way of bridging the gap to other minds. What I set out to do in this paper is complicate such focus on interpersonal emotions and affective states by highlighting how they in fact fail to provide full understanding of others yet can make significant contribution to our self-understanding that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. I will argue that in fact such self-understanding is inaccessible without making the effort to reach out to others and feel connections with others that poetry can facilitate. Poetry is inherently perspectival and consequently provides an opportunity to reflect on the possibilities of sharing beliefs, values and commitments.
