261053 Sartre and the Philosophy of Mind (V+S) (SoSe 2018)

Inhalt, Kommentar

This course is an intensive, combined lecture-seminar course on the early phenomenological philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre (up through Being and Nothingness (1943) and Self-Consciousness and Self-Knowledge (1948)).
We will cover Sartre’s seminal early contributions to phenomenological psychology, The Transcendence of the Ego, The Imagination, The Imaginary, and Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions as well as substantial sections of Being and Nothingness and a few other, smaller texts.
For context, we will consider Sartre’s appropriation of and variations on themes from Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Bergson, Husserl, and Heidegger as well as Freud, Janet, the Gestalt psychologists and the psychologists of the Würzburg school.
But our main task will be to relate Sartre’s early work to contemporary debates in analytic philosophy of mind and cognitive science, in particular, debates about the structure of consciousness and self-consciousness, about the self, about the nature of intentional content, about the experience of space, time, and embodiment, about emotion, and about the role of imagination and counterfactual thinking in our cognitive economy.

Assignments A (“Studienleistungen”): Students are strongly encouraged to attend lectures and participate in seminar discussions. They are required to take a general essay examination over the course material at the end of the course.
