Derrida: A 2002 Documentary on the Abstract Philosopher and the Everyday Man

Derrida: A 2002 Documentary on the Abstract Philosopher and the Everyday Man | Digital Philosophy | Scoop.it

We hear selections from Derrida’s writings intoned over shots of city streets and the man himself strolling them, pipe in mouth. We watch, through a regression of monitors, Derrida watching Derrida watching a tape of Derrida and his wife refusing to divulge the emotional details of their first meeting. Ryuichi Sakamoto’s ambient compositions score these conventionally cinematic moments as well as those… less so: Derrida getting a haircut, for instance, or speaking of his great wish to know more of Hegel and Heidegger’s sex lives. Any number of books and interviews can presumably teach you about Derrida’s oft-referenced techniques of deconstruction, but none of them so entertainingly examine the territory where the philosopher’s ideas end and his real world begins.

Philosophy Educator Using Learnist to Enhance Online Classroom

Philosophy Educator Using Learnist to Enhance Online Classroom | Digital Philosophy | Scoop.it
Greg says, “For the last five years, I’ve been teaching online and hybrid college courses in Philosophy, developing course shells into comprehensive learning environments for classes like Ethics, Critical Thinking, and Introduction to Philosophy. This required scouring the web for quality resources on the topics I was teaching, so I could provide them to my students, typically non-majors taking these courses to satisfy general education requirements. It also involved developing a number of my own resources, ranging from web-pages on key points and concepts, to handouts and worksheets, interactive practice quizzes, pages of links to online texts, and even embedded videos.”
