Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course takes as its starting point the thinking of address that emerges from the study of trauma, and explores how the notion of address (its failures, and its new possibilities) help us reconceptualize not only traumatic temporality and affect but the philosophical and theoretical frameworks bound up with them. We will open with a brief introduction on Sigmund Freud and move to three sections: on Jean-Francois Lyotard (selections from The Differend, "Emma," and "The Phrase Affect"), Emmanuel Levinas (selections from Otherwise than Being and "Philosophy and Awakening") and Paul de Man ("Autobiography as De-Facement," "Hypogram and Inscription," and "The Resistance to Theory"). Prominent Levinas, Lyotard, and trauma scholars will join the course for one class in each section.
