THE PHILOSOPHY OF EROTIC LOVE

Six week evening course

Erotic love – earthy and gross yet transcendent and spiritual, wild yet exclusive, natural yet artificial, spontaneous and conventional. This course examines the Western tradition of erotic love, looking at key philosophers from Plato to the present, and touching on anthropology, literature and neuroscience. In doing so, it examines related ideas about the self, and what it is to be a human, and to be a man or a woman.

The course is led by Jane O’Grady, who co-edited Blackwell’s Dictionary of Philosophical Quotations with A. J. Ayer, and writes philosophers’ obituaries for the Guardian, and reviews and articles for various papers and journals. She has been a Visiting Lecturer at City University for the last twelve years, and is one of the seven founders of the London School of Philosophy.
