PHIL 1060, Monday nights, 19 Sep 2016
Grounding ourselves in how the ancient Greeks and Chinese thought about the order of things. First, we discussed the basics of Hesiod’s mythopoeic worldview as a procreative cosmogony. Then, we moved over to talk about the insights of Laozi’s poetry concerning the Dào. All of this was to allow for a discussion of how we tend–if we are not careful–to make narratives of orderly exchange which privilege our psycho-social control of reality.
