The Story of An Idea: Space
Concepts of space, place, and void from Presocratic thought to Lefevbre.
In this course, we will follow the development of spacial concepts in Western Philosophy, from the unlimited and the void in Presocratic Philosophy, to space and place in Greek Philosophy, to relative and absolute space in Modern Philosophy. Finally, we’ll examine the most contemporary elaborations of space and place starting with Lefebvre’s theory of the social production of space.
This content is my research that I am sharing as I work on it, just like you might find in an advanced undergraduate or graduate course. Some familiarity with the History of Philosophy will serve you well, but I am here to suggest readings to anyone wanting to get up to speed or go deeper.
