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.

Recent research tells us that children are “hardwired” from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family, and school are less likely to misbehave. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills. Join us for an evening to discuss power struggles, sibling conflict, morning and bedtime hassles, and respectful and effective tools to replace shouting, nagging, bribing and punishment.

Emotions and the Self

16th January 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
London School of Philosophy

When you are angry or sad are you just having physical sensations? Or are anger or sadness, instead, ways of perceiving the situation you are in? Are emotions a distortion of our true (rational) nature, or essentially part of us? The way in which different philosophers have differently reconciled the cognitive and sensation aspects of emotion has always been closely bound up with different notions of what it means to be human. We examine theories about the self and its emotions from Homer to Sartre.
