Popular Culture and Philosophy ..

''It continues to fascinate me that my area of research, which examines how gender and race impact education and learning, is so central yet so under-examined. Whether you are looking at how female philosophers of ancient Greece were routinely excluded from historical re-telling or how today's popular media miseducates the public about women, there is much to be explored–and that means that the possibilities are limitless. I want students to see that we are living in a global community and that we have a commitment to be good citizens and lifelong learners in this expansive neighborhood.''

EECP seminars, Philosopher’s Walks, and occasional conferences are also made available.

When seeing the word postmodernism, it might have to do with any one medium of art-- literature, philosophy, history, economics, architecture, fiction, and literary criticism.

Popular culture can revolve around music, clothing, celebrities, vernacular or slang, and other fixations that become widespread across America.

On top of all this, Lewis's new pseudo-Manicheanism deeply affected his views on myth and the occult. While at Oxford and in the trenches, he was torn between myth and occult spiritualism on the one hand and Lucretian materialism on the other. During the war, he chose to read little in the way of myth, preferring, as we know, to read books on philosophy. However, while this increased attention to philosophy might have swayed Lewis's divided mind in favor of materialist philosophy against myth and occultism, this was not at all the case, as is evident in his 1919 poem "The Philosopher," which reveals his desire for a philosophy that can be reconciled with myth. Lewis's love of myth was in fact allied with his new interest in non-materialist philosophy in a struggle against his former materialism, the ultimate result of which was the formation of Lewis's new philosophy, pseudo-Manichean dualism.

The importance of myth in Lewis's pseudo-Manichean dualism is seen in his association of Satan with (material) Nature and Beauty with Spirit, which seems to have derived from his familiarity with Norse mythology, and not only from the anti-materialist philosophers he was encountering and his own wartime experience of seeing the carnage of physical Nature on a monumental scale. In the Norse myths, the world (that is, Nature) was created from the flesh of the evil frost giant Ymir, against whose children the heroic gods struggled. The theomachy of Norse mythology offered Lewis a concept of cosmic warfare which was complementary to that of Manicheanism and his own real life experience of war.
