Philosophy and Religious Studies Roundtable: The Critique of Religion in 19th-Century German Philosophy
Please join the Philosophy and Religious Studies Program for a roundtable discussion on:
The Critique of Religion in Nineteenth-Century German Philosophy, led by EKU Professor Todd Gooch.
Wednesday, October 31, 1:30pm-2:30pm
Keith Hall 319
The history of nineteenth-century German philosophy gave rise to several powerful critiques of religion in general, and Christianity particular, the historical influence of which, for better or worse, has been significant. We will discuss the ideas of Ludwig Feuerbach, the author of a famous book called The Essence of Christianity (1841), who was an important influence on the young Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, and later on Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis.
The discussion will be led by EKU Prof. Todd Gooch, who has contributed an article on Feuerbach to the online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, which can be viewed here: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/ludwig-feuerbach/.
Roundtable discussions are open to all EKU students, faculty, and staff.
