    We are starting up a weekly Chinese language studies class at the Bay Area Public School.

As we do this, we will incorporate practice-based and experimental learning techniques as well as draw links with chinese medicine, as a means to source the fullness of language-as-landscape -- in forms such as calligraphy, qigong, herbal studies, and Chinese healing practice language.

  • A Kantian Interlude : From Spinoza to Hegel

    Following up on the Bay Area Public School's epic years-long Spinoza reading group, we are planning to plunge fearlessly into Hegel's "Phenomenology of Spirit" later this spring. But first ... a Kantian interlude ! Specifically, we will read & discuss Kant's "Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics," a condensed summary of the metaphysical & epistemological views advanced in his "Critique of Pure Reason" (the so-called 'first critique'). Armed with the basics of Kant's innovations, we'll be more prepared to deal with the contexts behind Hegel's epoch-making work.

  • Introduction to Greek Grammar

    We will meet to study the grammar of ancient Greek -- specifically, the koine, or common speech, of the Hellenistic world. This class will serve as both an introduction to ancient Greek for total beginners, and a refresher for those who have studied some ancient Greek in the past. We will apply our learning to the collective study of the texts of the New Testament -- the most famous and influential texts written in koine Greek. All are welcome -- most especially those who have never studied Greek at all before but would like to give it a try.

  • Reading Paul : The Epistle to the Romans

    In this class, we will be reading aloud a chapter from Paul's Epistle to the Romans each week, and discussing it alongside Karl Barth’s commentary, The Epistle to the Romans. We want to explore the political and theological implications of Paul’s ministry to the Romans, both in his time and today. Romans is a central text in the history of Christianity, from Augustine through Luther to Kierkegaard and into the twentieth century. Most recently it has become the subject of texts by contemporary philosophers as diverse as Giorgio Agamben, Jacob Taubes and Alain Badiou.
