A Kantian Interlude : From Spinoza to Hegel

+ Attending

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. This class will meet in three sessions, and we'll be joined by Steve Seidenberg, a Ph.D in philosophy specializing in Hegel, who will help illuminate the path to Hegel's epochmaking work -- the inauguration of speculative dialectics.

For the first meeting, we will read the first third, through the first part of the transcendental question (‘How is pure mathematics possible?’), which goes to the beginning of section 14.
