Club Agenda 2023-2024: Nietzsche, Freud and Psychoanalysis, Marx and Dialectical Materialism
Where are the new physicians of the soul? —Friedrich Nietzsche, Daybreak (1982, 33)
Following Husserl and the dialectical method of Hegel, philosophy of mind and Hegelian dialectic are developed further by Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx. Upon finishing Freud and Marx, modern philosophers that are deeply influenced by them will be briefly covered. The Frankfurt School, Freudo-Marxism, Jacques Lacan, Michel Foucault, Herbert Marcuse, Louis Althusser, Slavoj Zizek, etc. are going to be discussed as "successors" of philosophical traditions of Freud and Marx.
