LPHI 2058 - Philosophy of Liberation

Which philosophy corresponds to the desire and demand for liberation? Written in 1976 right after being violently exiled from Argentina, Enrique Dussel’s Philosophy of Liberation is a philosophical attempt to answer this question, which has retained its urgency and timeliness to this day. The thrust to philosophically articulate the rationale of the movements of liberation lead Dussel to a new appreciation of the history of philosophy and its geopolitical relevance. This course will consist in a close reading of the book, exploring each of its different dimensions. Some of the themes addressed are: the ontological notions of being/exteriority, as well as historically situated reflections on war, violence, semiotics, design, economics, erotics, pedagogy and the environmental crisis. Students will be expected to learn and assess Dussel’s critique of the motivations underlying modern reason, as well as understand his critical engagement with different philosophical thinkers, such as Las Casas, Hegel, Marx, Heidegger, Levinas, Adorno, Marcuse, Ricoeur and Fanon.
