Masterclass “The Philosophy of History is a Centaur”

Thursday 27th April, 10.00-12.30

This seminar is aimed at postgraduate students, researchers and faculty. We will discuss with Susan Buck-Morss a draft chapter from her book YEAR 1, which will be distrbuted in advance for participants to read.

In YEAR 1 Buck-Morss challenges narratives of identity politics and religious separation in the Middle East, as well as assumptions and traps of thinking through modernity and post-modernity, by returning to the first century and rewriting the histories of how and who we came to be.

In the seminar we will look at the chapter 'The Philosophy of History if a Centaur'.

The session will be in the Oculus Building and light refreshments will be provided. Please register your interest in attending below. Further details and the reading will be sent out to participants.
