Colloquium Series - Love and Anxiety: Tension and Transformation

Friday, April 7, 2017; 3:30pm - 5:00pm

Campus Location: Psychology Building, Conference Room(0226)

Abstract: In Kierkegaard's Works of Love from 1847, love is emphasized as a primary concern of human and Christian existence. I would like to explore the thoughts presented in this work on love's relation to subjectivity and the radicality of the Christian commandment of neighbor love. I will argue that a commitment to the command entails a transformation of the self, which inevitably is challenged by the co-existence of anxiety and despair, concepts central in Kierkegaard's anthropology. This talk will then highlight both our human, all too human ways of loving and despairing about love and the Christian answer to these problems and touch upon the consequences this answer has for subjectivity in Kierkegaard.

Biography: Amanda Houmark is a Master's student at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. She is co-founder of the student journal Kierkegaard in Process and student assistant at the Søren Kierkegaard Research Center. Her main interests are in the field of Philosophy of Religion, Kierkegaard, Existential philosophy, Plato and the Philosophy of Love. She is currently working on her Master's thesis on Kierkegaard and the concept of transformative love in Works of Love.

Colloquium Series - Phenomenology from Now On

Monday, April 10, 2017; 4:30pm - 5:45pm

Campus Location: Psychology Building, Conference Room(0226)

Abstract: What is phenomenology and why does it matter? This presentation will seek to answer these questions by giving a basic introduction to classical phenomenology as a framework for making sense of recent French, "new," phenomenology. Focusing on questions in the philosophy of religion, ethics, and political theory, the hope will be to demonstrate that phenomenology from now on should be understood as a wide-ranging discourse that is not narrowly limited by methodological constraints, but rather a profound resource for philosophical inquiry and human social existence because of the openness provided by that very methodological orientation. In other words, phenomenology matters because it helps us to pay attention to what should matter.

Biography: J. Aaron Simmons is associate professor of philosophy at Furman University. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Vanderbilt University and also holds a M.A. in humanities from Florida State University. Specializing in Philosophy of Religion, Simmons draws primarily upon the existential and phenomenological traditions of post-Kantian European philosophy. In addition to being the author of over 50 articles and book chapters, Simmons is the author of God and the Other (Indiana University Press), the co-author of The New Phenomenology (Bloomsbury), and co-editor of Kierkegaard and Levinas (Indiana University Press), Reexamining Deconstruction and Determinate Religion (Duquesne University Press), and Phenomenology for the 21st Century (Palgrave). He is also the author of a forthcoming book on Continental Philosophy of Religion and co-editor of a book entitled Kierkegaard's God and the Good Life. Originally from Tennessee, Simmons grew up in Brandon, Florida.
