From the group’s organizer, Jake:
If anyone is interested in an informal Sartre reading group, we will meet Tuesday, January 29th at 9:45pm** at Oasis (north on Sheridan from campus). The first reading will be the introduction and first chapter (“The Dogmatic Dialectic and the Critical Dialectic”) of Sartre’s Critique of Dialectical Reason, which is about 40 pages. The venue may change after the first meeting depending on level of interest. If you have any questions about the logistics of the meeting, email me (jnabasny [at] luc [dot] edu) and I’ll try to help/accommodate them.
CORRECTION: Please note that the workshop starts at 2pm (not at 12:30pm, as stated in the above flyer).
This semester a teaching discussion group for graduate students is starting up. They’ll be meeting in the grad lounge one Thursday per month, at 3pm. This month’s meeting is on January 31st.
No set list of topics has been proposed, but the hope is that this will be a place for graduate students interested in becoming better teachers to come and share their concerns, strategies, and hard-won wisdom.
Contact Rebecca Scott for more info, rscott [at] luc [dot] edu.
The virtue ethics reading group is getting started back up again. Meetings will take place on Mondays at 3:30pm, location TBD. Next week, January 28th, is the first meeting. They’ll be discussing Julia Annas’ “Virtue Ethics,” her entry in the Oxford Handbook of Ethical Theory.

For those of you who don’t know about the PRG, here’s the blurb from their site’s “About” section (also, shame on you!):
The Phenomenology Research Group (PRG) at Loyola University Chicago is a joint student-faculty initiative dedicated to advancing research in phenomenology. The PRG is open to the entire academic community of Loyola University, Chicago, the greater Midwest, and beyond. Inter-disciplinary approaches are welcome. Seminars and workshops will be held on a regular basis to present research and inspire new directions in contemporary phenomenology.
The PRG was founded in 2012 by Dr. Hanne Jacobs, Thomas Bretz, Rebecca Scott, Giancarlo Tarantino, Sean Petranovich, and Mike Gutierrez.
This group is an exciting development for the department and for phenomenologists in and around Chicago. For those of you are interested in being involved and/or following the work that they’re doing, there’s a link to their Facebook page (and their site) in the right sidebar on this blog. You can subscribe to their newsletter here.
Keep up the good work, y’all!
From Michael Gutierrez (of the PRG):
On Thursday the 17th, the internationally renowned scholar Andrew Benjamin (Monash University) will deliver a talk titled “Contra Heidegger’s Descartes: Recovering Relationality”. We’re lucky to have him and it should be a great talk so please do show up: 2-4pm, Crown Center, Room 530. Snacks & bevvies! Any last minute schedule changes (not anticipating any, but…) should be here: http://www.phenomenologyresearchgroup.net/
Some philosophers are getting together to run on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. The runs will start and end on campus (1-5 miles, depending on the day). If you didn’t get the schedule or would just like more details, get in touch with Lay, Philosophy Run Club President. All are welcome!
