Led by Herman Bergson, the group meets twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm SLT, in the virtual world of Second Life. Meetings consist of a brief and concise lecture (usually about 20 minutes long) followed by discussion and any additional questions. Transcripts of the previous classes are available on the Philosophy Class blog.
This semester is dedicated to the Dutch Jewish philosopher Baruch Spinoza and his influential ideas that have left a deep mark on the subsequent philosophy in the West. To learn more about his thought, have a look at the entry in the Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
