Show Notes

In this episode of Philosophy Voiced, we are joined by Rick Anthony Furtak, Associate Professor in philosophy at Colorado College, US, former president of the American Søren Kierkegaard Society and an acclaimed poet. Rick is the author of two monographs, Wisdom in Love: Kierkegaard and the Ancient Quest for Emotional Integrity (2005) and Knowing Emotions: Truthfulness and Recognition in Affective Experience (2018).

Hosts Kamila Pacovská (Pardubice) and Ruth Rebecca Tietjen (Copenhagen) discuss with Rick his studies in Chicago, the difference between European and American philosophy, connections between philosophy, literature (and poetry) and emotions, topics from his book Knowing Emotions, and other topics from his new book on Proust. 

Rick gave an Intensive seminar at the Pardubice Centre for Ethics (https://centreforethics.upce.cz/en/intensive-seminar-rick-anthony-furtak) which was the occasion of this podcast and inspiration to some of our topics.
