Course on Meaning with Taylor Carman and Simon Critchley at ReD Associates' offices in New York.
Professors in Philosophy Taylor Carman and Simon Critchley curated a course on meaning for our consultants in New York for the fall/winter of 2015 and winter/spring of 2016. The goal of the course is to keep our thinking attuned to the explanatory power of philosophy.
As you will hear on the recordings, the discussions are often lively and connected to what was happening in the world at the time of the session. Both professors are avid music fans, which means they will often explain a section from the readings with an example including Bob Dylan (Carman) or Bowie (Critchley).
