Philosophy Book Discussion Group

The Philosophy Book Discussion Group shall initially draw from British and Germanic thinkers.  This split prompts a sharp distinction between science and theology/philosophy, as expressed in the division of ‘mind’ and ‘brain’.  A major focus will be to address philosophy as a personal or individual subject in relation to academic philosophers.  Using titles from the Very Short Introduction series, published by Oxford University Press, the initial chosen authors will follow chronologically from the Enlightenment Era to the first part of the 20thcentury.  Although the books are small and brief they are compacted with much detail requiring thoughtful examination.  The book for June discussion is Freud: A Very Short Introduction by Peter Singer (Oxford University Press, $11.95). Storr offers a lucid and objective look at Freud's major theories, evaluating whether they have stood the test of time, and in the process examines Freud himself in light of his own ideas. An excellent introduction to Freud's work, this book will appeal to all those broadly curious about psychoanalysis, psychology, and sociology.
