Spectres of the Dialectic from the Big Bang to the Multiverse: Explorations with Hegel, Marx & Engels on the Philosophy of Nature
Tue, September 30, 2014 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Explorations with Hegel, Marx & Engels on the Philosophy of Nature
Through writings, videos, and other media we will engage in issues in modern physics and biology that get to the core of the current crisis in science and take us beyond the limitations of the mechanical picture of the world we have inherited.
This class will be a deep engagement in fundamental philosophical and scientific questions concerning space, time, matter, motion, entropy, evolution and origins. We will be engaged in readings and presentations in philosophy as well as biological and physical science. Debates in contemporary physics and biology will be highlighted for their implications for a dialectical philosophy of nature. No prior background is required.
Alex Steinberg taught Engels and the Dialectics of Nature at the Brecht Forum in the Spring of 2014. He has previously given classes on Hegel and Marxist philosophy and been a presenter at the Left Forum. He has also served on the local and national boards of radio station WBAI.
