Process and Reality Course with John Cobb
March 17 - April 21
In this six-session course John Cobb will provide an introduction to one of the most compelling and challenging philosophical texts of the Twentieth Century. Process and Reality is a notoriously difficult text, but the goal of this course is to enable students to not only skim the surface but probe its deeper dimensions. With his decades of experience as a scholar and teacher of Whitehead, Cobb will elucidate the major themes and illuminate the major concepts in a way that is accessible to anyone.
Each week will feature a Lecture + Reading + Discussion + Q/A. Each of the elements are intended to provide all the resources necessary for the engaged nerd like yourself to wrestle deeply with a powerful text – Process and Reality.
- The LECTURE each week will be given by world’s foremost living expert on Whitehead’s philosophy, Dr. Cobb. Session by session we will walk through the text, developing Whitehead’s larger philosophical project.
- Following the lecture there will be a DISCUSSION of the texts and themes explored in the lecture between John and Tripp.
- Throughout the class everyone will be invited to join and engage each other in our private group page. In addition to all the conversation threads the community will bring, Tripp will be hosting live streamed Q/A SESSIONS within the group & have SPECIAL GUESTS join to explore their favorite themes in Whitehead.
