The Adelaide

A Saturday School with Chris Hamilton, Kings College London

Many philosophers in the analytic tradition have recently sought to explore the question of the meaning of life. In this class we shall discussĀ one or two important approaches from this tradition and see how plausible they are. We shall then think about the general approach they adopt and seek to explore an alternative approach indebted to the writings of Hannah Arendt in particular.
