Dr Dickman teaches "Freud"
Event Description:
FREUD:  CIVILIZATION AND ITS DISCONTENTS – Starts 7/10 (10:00-12:00 p.m. for 4 consecutive 4 days)
This four class series consists of a guided reading through the entirety of Freud’s masterpiece, Civilization and Its Discontents. The primary goal is to read it to enter into dialogue with Freud. Through dialogue with him, we will engage our minds. We will also note some features of the historical context in which Freud wrote the work, Freud’s rhetorical artistry within it, and Freud’s impact on subsequent culture, psychology, and religion.
Dr. Dickman’s teaching and research interests are in comparative religious philosophies, philosophical hermeneutics (interpretation theory) and philosophy of language. He has taught courses in Wittgenstein, Existentialism, Philosophical Theology, Buddhist Thought, Islam and more. Dr. Dickman recently piloted and supervised a successful undergraduate teaching assistant program to mentor students within his department. He has published many peer-reviewed articles and presented at countless conferences, and he strives to help his students do the same. His work extends beyond the fields of philosophy and religion, with published work on the use of questions in the college classroom and in question games like "20 Questions." Dr. Dickman loves to talk about "deep" things such as the meaning of life, the being of God, myths and symbols, and religious diversity. You're welcome to stop by and chat with him at his office or wherever you might run into him around campus. Or you might try catching up with him during meetings of the student groups S.I.G.H.T. (Student Inquiry Group for Humanist Thought) or the Buddhist Meditation and Mindfulness Gathering. Dr. Dickman earned bachelor of arts degrees in philosophy and religion from the University of Dubuque and received a Ph.D. in religious studies, specializing in modern religious philosophy, from the University of Iowa.
