Join Adult Community Learning Brentwood for a lecture on Existentialism, Freedom, and Cocktails in Paris.
Get ready to be taken on a philosophical journey, delving into the depths of our existence, starting of course on the Left Bank of Paris. The purpose of philosophy is to disrupt, transform, and open up the world. It is Existentialism, perhaps more than any other philosophical school, which has sought to do this and tackle the question of existence in the modern age.
In this lecture we will be introduced to Existentialist philosophers like Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre and Beauvoir. Those thinkers who have produced seismic philosophies that enable us to question the world we are in, and offer us the means to face it head on through many different creative ways.
Everyday life will never be quite the same again!
