daragh

Giambattisa Vico (1668-1744) and a certain posthumous fame have appealed to such diverse thinkers as Jules Michelet, Friedrich von Savigny, Karl Marx, Benedetto Croce, Matthew Arnold and James Joyce. He has been regarded as the founder - unrecognized by his contemporaries - of the philosophy of history or even of social science, and as a man whose ideas anticipated such later intellectual movements as pragmatism, historicism, existentialism, and structuralism. This talk will strip away much of the myth which surrounds…

The Russian thinker Mikhail M. Bakhtin (1895-1975) had an impact on a range of scholarly areas, i.e. literary studies, philosophy, semiotics, cultural studies, feminist and post-colonial studies, Marxism and ethics. Perhaps precisely because he had a talent in bringing diverse methods of thinking closer to each other to gain a comprehensive view of the concepts he was interested in. His notion of utterances, speech genres and heteroglossia are based on dialogical thinking which by nature aims at interconnecting different fields.…

Dr Sardar Aziz – Iraq As a European Tragic Idea.

April 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Dr Sardar Aziz Senior Adviser Kurdistan Parliament/Iraq European Thought and Global Inspiration Iraq As a European Tragic Idea. It is common to describe Iraq as an ancient entity. However, this norm does not withstand the country's reality. I argue that the notion of Iraq (as a nation or state) is a colonial construction, barely a century old. There is a plethora of historical works attempting to chronologise this narrative. My view focuses primarily on the idea(s) that gave birth and…

CASiLaC and THE DEPARTMENT OF GERMAN present   Miriam Sachs Berlin author, director and scenographer   Re-Animations or: How to use dead things The German poet Heinrich von Kleist often created heroes who receive their mission in a state of absence: his characters are not conscious – in mind, or sometimes even in body – at the climax of the texts. They fall in love while dreaming, marry while in a faint, and even the act of procreation happens unconsciously…
