I Can't Keep Calm Because of Sociology
Led by Kamila Bialy, the sociology study group will focus on exploring a number of contemporary social theories influenced by philosophy, anthropology, etc. to understand a larger field within which Gestalt Therapy theory has been developing for the last decades. In so doing we will be involved in “hermeneutic games” of perceiving GTT as a figure and a specific social theory as a background (and vice-versa) as well as discussing possible ways they reciprocally shape one another.
Needless to say, this is not only about language-games! Theories, epistemologies, social conditioning of knowledge influence our embodied collective and individual modes of being.
We will be meeting every third Friday at noon EST/6pm CET.
Each meeting costs $10/ or $60 for 10.
Next meeting is November , the 27th. We will be reading Philippe Descola’ s book “The Ecology of Others”. Descola is a French anthropologist, anthropological theorist, interested in departure from nature-culture division as well as in human and non-human complex relationships.
