Existentialism in Literature and Film Course by Hubert L. Dreyfus on Free Audio Download Ever feel like life needs a little more meaning? Well then listen to these guys' perspectives and solutions to make sense of this craziness in life. The lecturer is super-accessible, and clear, and sometimes even funny. I'm 22, studied biology, never taken a philosophy class and never heard of Kierkegaard, and all his talk is understandable even to me. This class builds a framework for which we can understand our own existence and what we can do with the time we got here, from the perspectives of three philosophers. Truly, it gave me three new ways to think about the meaning of life, and I now follow a bit of each.

Rencontre avec Jim Harrison Autant de noms, autant de facettes Un jour, il va se définir comme un écrivain mexicain qui écrit en américain - il raffole de musiques hispaniques, et la grande Cesaria Evoria l'émeut beaucoup. Un jour, il dira à un ami français, Patrick Raynal, qu'il se voit comme un "sport white trash" (c'est à dire un balourd blanc légèrement raffiné).. Son surnom est communément "Big Jim", mais son traducteur Brice Matthieussent rapporte qu'il s'appelle lui même Poor Little Jimmy. Dans sa petite enfance, vers 4 ans, son père le surnommait "Petite crotte de misère".

מכתב אל האב על פי מקס ברוד, מכתב זה לא הגיע מעולם ליעדו. קפקא מסר את המכתב לאמו, כדי שתעבירו הלאה לאביו, אך היא החזירה אותו אליו, מתוך ידיעה ברורה, כי אביו עלול לפרש מכתב זה שלא כהלכה. רקע לכתיבת המכתב[עריכת קוד מקור | עריכה] הרמן קפקא, אביו של פרנץ קפקא David Chalmers David Chalmers I am a philosopher at New York University and the Australian National University. Officially I am Professor of Philosophy and co-director of the Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness at NYU, and also (20% time) Professor of Philosophy at ANU. I work in the philosophy of mind and in related areas of philosophy and cognitive science. I am especially interested in consciousness, but am also interested in all sorts of other issues in the philosophy of mind and language, metaphysics and epistemology, and the foundations of cognitive science. This site includes quite a bit of my own work (e.g. all of my papers), and it also includes a number of resources I've put together on topics related to consciousness and/or philosophy: e.g., MindPapers (a bibliography), directories of online papers, and some philosophical diversions.
