About the event

The late Heidegger famously argued that philosophy had come to an end with the Death of Platonism and that “only a god can save us now.” Vittorio Hösle’s seminal Die Philosophie der ökologischen Krise also presents an apocalyptic vision of philosophy, both more sober and open to renewal. A key contrast between Heidegger and Hösle is their relationship to Hegel and his rationalistic eschatology. This seminar will explore the concept of apocalyptic philosophy using Heidegger, Hegel, and Hösle as our coordinates to develop a vision of the present crisis as the return of the repressed origin of philosophy as radical eschatology. 

Open to beginners in philosophy but designed for students with some prior philosophical training.
