ONEIL LECTURES IN HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY TO FEATURE CAL-BERKELEY PROFESSOR AT UNM
Two ONeil Lectures in the History of Philosophy, featuring Hubert Dreyfus,
of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Cal-Berkeley, are scheduled
Thursday and Friday, March 28-29. The lectures are sponsored by the University
of New Mexico Department of Philosophy and will be held in Anthropology room
163 at 3:30 p.m.
Dreyfus will present Anonymity vs.Commitment in the Present Age: Kierkegaard on the Dangers of the Internet, on Thursday, and What Could be More Intelligible Than Everyday Intelligibility?: Reinterpreting Division I of Being and Time in the Light of Division II on Friday.
Dreyfus latest book, On The Internet (Routledge, 2001), combines
and extends his previous work on continental philosophy and on the philosophical
implications of technology, which hell discuss in Thursdays lecture.
Dreyfus is also working on a revised, second edition of Being-in-the-World,
and he will present a portion of this work in Fridays lecture.
Dreyfus, whose interests include phenomenology, existentialism, philosophy of psychology, philosophy of literature, and philosophical implications of artificial intelligence, has published more than 120 articles and five books. His book on Martin Heidegger, Being-in-the-World (1991), is widely regarded as the single best book on Heidegger available and as a model of creative and original philosophical scholarship.
Among his honors and awards, Dreyfus has won several National Endowment for
the Humanities and National Science Foundation grants, a Fulbright, a Guggenheim
Fellow and a Phi Beta Kappa Lecturer. He also holds an honorary doctorate from
Erasmus University in Rotterdam. He was recently inducted to the American Academy
of Arts & Sciences and is a recipient of the Harbison Prize for Outstanding
Teaching at UC Berkeley, where he is a professor in the Graduate School of Philosophy.
Dreyfus earned his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from Harvard University. He has taught
at Harvard, MIT, Brandeis, the College of France (at the invitation of Michel
Foucault), and at Frankfurt University (at the invitation of Jurgen Habermas).
