Existentialism, Phenomenology, and Literature (Houston)http://www.meetup.com/Existentialism-Phenomenology-and-Literature-Houston/http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/5/d/2/2/global_370823842.jpeg20140601
For anyone interested in exploring the literature, philosophy, and cinema of the so-called "Existentialist" movement. This will be accomplished through occasional film viewings and regular group discussions that will be centered around classic and contemporary works. We will not only look at the traditional cast of existential characters (Sartre, de Beauvoir, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, Camus, Kafka), but will also be very open to other work within the European philosophical tradition that is derivative of (or critical towards) "existential" philosophy (e.g. Derrida, Deleuze, Levinas, etc.). Special consideration will also be given to works within the phenomenological tradition (e.g. Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty). Join us in this exciting intellectual endeavor! Learn more about this fascinating movement which continues to have such a profound influence on Art, Literature, Film, Philosophy, and culture in general. Get ready for fun, riveting, and thoughtful discussions about society, values, faith, spirituality, truth, experience, subjectivity, and existence (of course)...meetings on the third Sunday of every month.
