Emeritus Professor of Philosophy and Afro-American Studies
The University of Massachusetts Amherst
Mondays at 1 p.m. in Caldwell 213
March 27, April 3, April 10, and April 17, 2017
The lectures are open to members of the UNC – CH community and presuppose no prior knowledge of Freud’s writings or legacy. The purpose of the lectures is to provide an introduction to the underlying methods, concepts, presuppositions, and results of Freud’s revolutionary work. The focus of the lectures will be on Freud’s central psychological theories, not on his cultural critique.
Trigger warning: There will not be much talk about sex.
