How does philosophy show up in the world around us, and in our everyday consumption of popular culture? How can we use popular media to demystify big philosophical concepts and abstract thought? In this lab, we will explore the intersections between philosophy and popular culture in order to break down complex abstract ideas, and make the theoretical accessible.

Through analysis of popular media such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, memes, Cardi B, and the Kardashians, we will delve into existentialism, political philosophy, metaphysics, philosophy of science and language, and more. Using popular media to do philosophy in a content-based way, we will flex our critical thinking skills, practice engaging in deep analysis and discussion of the theoretical, and learn some history of philosophy — all while discussing our favorite TV shows, books, and celebrities.

Finding the Philosophy in Pop Culture is a 2-part Lab series and meets:
Saturday, June 8th, 2019: 10:00am — 4:00pm
and
Saturday, June 15th, 2019: 10:00am — 4:00pm
