Paul Franks: Skepticism, Naturalism, and Nihilism in Hegel’s Early Jena Writings

Share

Paul Franks (Philosophy, University of Toronto) delivered a lecture on “Skepticism, Naturalism, and Nihilism in Hegel’s Early Jena Writings” at the New School on February 22, 2007. An audio recording of that lecture is available online, and can be downloaded as an mp3 by clicking here. Those who are familiar with Prof. Franks’ work — such as his book on German Idealism (below) or his wonderful essay, “The Discovery of the Other: Cavell, Fichte, and Skepticism,” in Crary and Shieh’s Reading Cavell — will, I’m sure, be eager to hear his talk.

The site’s brief “about” text reads as follows: “The discourse notebook is an effort (in conjunction with ‘The Bernstein Tapes‘) to make available lectures in contemporary continental philosophy.”
