Philosophy & Literature Courses

A History of Western Philosophy: Early C20th [three week course]

5th until 26th 

June 2023.


3.30pm until 5pm GMT [14:30 until 16:00 UTC]

The early C20th saw a strong divergence between the analytic philosophy in Britain, and European (or Continental) philosophy, the former seeking certainty in logic and language.  In this course we will explore the impact this had upon the philosophy of Russell and Wittgenstein in particular, before concluding the course with Heidegger.

Great Russian Literature [three week course]

6th until 27th June 2023.  Tuesdays, 3.30pm until 5pm [14:30 until 16:00 UTC] 

In this course, the first in a series on Russian literature, we will look at the life and literature of Ukrainian writer Nikolay Gogol.  Making reference to his novel Dead Souls and his short story 'The Overcoat' we will explore the themes of bureaucracy, social status and redemption.
