How To Analyze Cultural/Political Events
Jun 30, 1990
How are philosophic principles to be applied to the interpretation of cultural/political events? This is a "how-to" course (for writers and non-writers) on thinking about world events. It will teach you how to identify their essential aspects, to grasp their intellectual significance, and to evaluate their moral implications. Mr. Schwartz will examine concrete events––including examples taken from his own writings in The Intellectual Activist––and discuss the steps needed to perform an objective analysis.
