Philosophy and Our Lives is a NYC meetup that dwells in the tension between individual life that is lived for the first time, and civilization as a shared creation over generations. Can philosophy be of any value to our being in this world?
We read and discuss the uniqueness of the present moment - the philosophy of our time - through the lens of thinkers such as Nietzsche, Camus, Sartre, Adorno, De Beauvoir, Benjamin, Kant, Kierkegaard, Spinoza, Husserl, Habermas, Levinas, Kafka, Althusser, Buber, Hegel, Foucault, Baudrillard, Zizek, Lyotard, Arendt and Heidegger.
Philosophy is a relentless interweaving of the actual and the potential. Everyone who is interested in metaphysical questions such asand now what?is welcome to join and contribute ideas!
