The Concept of Will

Tuesday 4th October @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
London School of Philosophy

The “will” has been a salient concept in philosophy since its very beginnings. We will critically examine it in its many contexts and discuss its meanings and significance: from Aristotle’s idea of the “weakness of the will” to medieval discussions of the will of God vs the will of humans, from Rousseau’s “general will” to Kant’s “good will”, from Schopenhauer’s “will to life” to Nietzsche’s “will to power”. Our focus will be on historical and contemporary discussions of freedom of the will.
