A SPIRIT OF TRUST
Five-Part Lecture Series on Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit (at the University of Leipzig, Germany)
Robert Brandom explains what we can still learn from Hegel today. He brings Hegel’s ideas fruitfully to bear on current action theory, metaphysics, social ontology and philosophy of language. The lecture series begins in December 2015 with the first part, which comprises three lectures:
Part I – Knowing and Representing: Reading (between the lines of) Hegel’s Introduction to the Phenomenology
14. 12. 2015: Conceptual Realism and the Semantic Possibility of Knowledge
15. 12. 2015: Representation and the Experience of Error: A Functionalist Approach to the Distinction between Appearance and Reality
16. 12. 2015: Following the Path of Despair to a Bacchanalian Revel: The Emergence of the Second, True, Object
The series will continue in June 2016 with the second part, entitled “Mediating the Immediate: Consciousness and the Inferential Articulation of Determinate Empirical Content”. Three further parts are to follow (temporary titles are: “Self-Consciousness and Recognition”, “Hegel’s Expressive Metaphysics of Agency”, “From Irony to Trust: The Spirit Chapter of Hegel’s Phenomenology”).
