Avicenna and the Aristoliean Left -- Ernst Bloch

TBD - Chicago

Link to Text https://www.scribd.com/document/408723122/Ernst-Bloch-Avicenna-and-the-Aristotelian-Left-2019-Columbia-University-Press-pdf Will be discussing the recently translated work by Ernst Bloch of the Frankfurt School. Against the background of today's Islamophobia, Bloch's study is an extraordinary achievement. It demonstrates how one of the hidden origins of European modernity is Avicenna's interpretation of Aristotle. Islamic thought at the roots of our notions of freedom and emancipation? If you are shocked, read Bloch's book! It is only now, almost a century after its first publication, that the time for this book has arrived.
