Description

Existentialism, Psychoanalysis and Religion

Wednesday 5 September, 7:30pm

Conceptions of life, freedom and choice will be explored in existential philosophy and psychoanalytic theory (with reference to Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Freud, Heidegger, Jung, Sartre and Lacan). In what way do they fill the spiritual void traditionally occupied by religion?


Keith Barrett has taught philosophy for more than 20 years, delivering a range of courses such as ‘Existentialism (Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre)’; ‘Philosophy and Psychoanalysis (Freud, Jung, Klein, Winnicott, Lacan)’; ‘The Later Heidegger’; and ‘Philosophers of Otherness (Levinas, Girard, Ricoeur, Derrida)’. He currently teaches 'Freud for Philosophers' at the London School of Philosophy.

Description

On the first Wednesday of every month the PFA meets at "Kant’s Cave" for a lecture, debate and social evening, normally in the upstairs bar of the Exmouth Arms at 1 Starcross Street, London NW1 2HR. The Exmouth Arms is in a quiet residential street about five minutes walk from Warren Street, Euston and Euston Square stations.

Meetings are held in the function room of a pub to combine serious philosophical activity with informal exchanges of ideas and views. Everybody is invited to stay on after the lectures for more talk and debate. All lectures start at 7.30 pm; the bar is open from 7.00. There is a £2 door charge for non-PFA members.
