Hermeneutics, Philosophy and Religion: Gadamer: Week 2

27 Jan 2017

Classic problems in Philosophy, Religion and the Humanities more broadly can be approached through the branch of phenomenology that Hans-Georg Gadamer termed ‘Philosophical Hermeneutics’. Texts become living objects of dialogue. Spirituality becomes a process through which the self grows. Community becomes a form of expanded selfhood, and religious truth claims become an invitation to adapt oneself to a new picture of the world. These seminars will explore key themes, drawing on Gadamer’s writings on beauty, health and ethics, Plato and Hegel, spiritual growth and multicultural society.These 1 hour seminars will explore key themes in the Study of the Humanities in general, and religion in particular:Week 2: Redefining Truth and Text—Living LanguageWeek 3: Hermeneutic Spirituality—Locating the individual in the WholeWeek 4: Defining Self, Body, and Agency—Self as shifting nexusWeek 5: Rethinking Community and Pluralism—From dialogues to chorusesWeek 6: Science vs Religion Truths—From prediction to transformationWeek 7: Rethinking Divinity—Alternative forms of 'God'

From Myth to Metaphysics: The Emergence of Ancient Philosophy in Greece, India, Egypt and China

Workshop
14 Feb 2019

Cosmologies across ancient cultures describe the shape and structure of the universe, its origins and functioning - but when do these ‘myths’ become ‘metaphysics’? This symposium will bring together scholars of diverse ancient cultures in a ‘global’ conversation exploring the path from ‘Cosmology’ and ‘Myth’, to ‘Philosophy’ and ‘Metaphysics’. Jessica Frazier, Christopher Marlow, Lea Cantor and others will explore cases from Greece, India, Egypt and beyond.

Solving the Mystery of Exams: A Revision Seminar

Seminar
28 Feb 2019

There is a mystery surrounding exams: all you have to do is turn up and write down what you know for three hours... but really you are expected to fit complex arguments, critical perspectives, vast secondary literature, and an original argument into just a few pages scribbled down in 45 minutes. There is no single template for doing exams, but this seminar explores some useful insights and strategies, then opens up to questions.
