! The seminar is open to current Yale undergraduate and graduate students.
Join Skidmore College’s Flagg Taylor for a three-day seminar reflecting on the writings of two of the great authors of the twentieth century: Arthur Koestler and Václav Havel. Attention will be primarily directed to their reflections on the nature of “ideological tyranny” or “totalitarianism” and its effects on the human personality and human relations. This theme will provide an avenue into more general themes that resonate throughout a broad tradition in political philosophy: the questions of justice, tyranny, and political responsibility.
The seminar will take place on October 18th-20th at the Buckley Institute Office in New Haven. Participants will be expected to complete a moderate amount of reading prior to the seminar. Students will receive free course materials, lunch and dinner will be provided for the duration of the seminar, and those who complete the full seminar will be eligible to receive a $150 stipend. Applications are due September 13th, 2023.
