Book Launch Celebration: Dr. Chris Lauer, Philosophy
Location: CC 301
On behalf of our student philosophy club, please attend the launch celebration of our own Chris Lauer's new book Intimacy: A Dialectical Study. After an informal grilling from me and the Philosophy Club, Chris will discuss what led him to write a book about the impossibility of intimacy and answer questions from the audience. The book is already drawing some rave reviews, some of which can be seen on the publisher's website, and which I've pasted below. Come be a part of Chris's introduction of his work to the local `ohana. Light pupus will be provided.
Date: Thursday, March 10
Time: 3:30 to 5:00
Location: Campus Center 301
“This is a masterful work of philosophy. Lauer artfully shows why dialectical thinking is relevant today, and he demonstrates what it looks like with respect to the issue of intimacy. Playful and unassuming, the scholarship is first-rate and wide-ranging in both scope and implications. The writing is fluid and purposeful. A must read for anyone interested in love, loss, community, and the stakes of contemporary philosophy.” – Jason Kemp Winfree, Professor of Philosophy, California State University, USA
“In a work that is both humble and profound, Christopher Lauer's dialectics uncovers intimacy's contradictions. Unraveling naïve, romantic and ironic notions alike, Intimacy testifies to the power and meaning of intimacy for human relationships, while ultimately arguing that intimacy cannot live up to its own demands.” – Marjolein Oele, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of San Francisco, USA
“Chris Lauer cut his philosophical teeth on the rigors of German Idealism, especially Hegel and Schelling. He is also well-versed in contemporary Continental thought and has a profound sense of what is still living in German Idealism for contemporary thinking and living. It is with great pleasure that we now receive this "dialectical" account of intimacy (influenced by Hegel, Schelling, and critical theory, but not limited to them). Displaying impressive erudition, Lauer's new work is both strikingly original and a welcome new development in this venerable tradition.” – Jason M. Wirth, Professor of Philosophy, Seattle University, USA
