In this intensive online seminar, Greg will lead participants in study of a central issue in Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic Existentialist work, Being and Nothingness (get a copy here) – human freedom and responsibility.
This is quite a long and dense work, so we are only going to focus in on selected passages of the book. It can also be useful to read Sartre’s more popularly-oriented lecture, “Existentialism is a Humanism”. We will look at Sartre’s conception of radical freedom, the in-itself and the for-itself, facticity, determinism, and the freedom of other people.
We will take scheduled pauses for question and answer during the presentation, and have a longer question and answer period towards the end. Participants will receive downloadable handouts and worksheets on the topics, and will be able to access a recording of the seminar afterwards.
Enrollment in the seminar is restricted to 12 participants, and costs US$49.00. To register, or to get on our list for future seminars, click here (coming soon)
