PHILOSOPHIES OF ANXIETY
Brexit. Trump. Terrorism. The rise of the far-right.
Anxiety is both everywhere and nowhere at once. At once a condition to be understood in psychiatric and psychoanalytical terms, anxiety is also a political, aesthetic, cultural, and metaphysical affair.
To what extent is anxiety a philosophical problem, though? And what role do art and literature play in articulating the anxieties that are embedded in society? Philosophy and anxiety have a long established history. From Kierkegaard to Heidegger, anxiety has been regarded as the philosophical mood par excellence.
In bringing together a collection of distinguished thinkers and broad perspectives, from phenomenology to psychoanalysis to literature, this colloquium will explore a plurality of anxieties, each of which is central to contemporary culture and thought.
