Sara Brill Virtual Book Launch - "Aristotle and the Concept of Shared Life"

Date: 11-11-2020

Time: 05:00 PM

Location: Virtual

Join us for Sara Brill's virtual book launch in conversation with Josh Hayes, PhD of Alvernia University on Wednesday, November 11 at 5 p.m.

Aristotle on the Concept of Shared Life explores the intertwining of power and life in Aristotle's thought, and argues that Aristotle locates the foundation of human political life in the capacity to share one's most vital activities with others.Tracing the human capacity to share life thus illuminates the interrelation between the zoological, ethical, and political lenses through which Aristotle pursues his investigation of the polis. In following this connection, Brill also examines — and critically evaluates — the reception of Aristotle's political thought in some of the most influential concepts of contemporary critical theory.

Presented by the Humanities Institute, The College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Philosophy.
