Sunday Lecture - Does Philosophy and Politics mix?

Mark Fielding on politics and philosophy

Philosophy tries to picture the world as it is in general terms, but politics focusses on the way the world should be. Martin Heidegger provides an example through which to consider the difficulties which emerge when Philosophy and Politics come together. To what extent can and should Philosophy inform politics? And should we take seriously the idea that Politics can change the nature of Philosophy?
Mark Fielding has taught at UCL, Birkbeck College, The Open University, and The University of Greenwich. He holds degrees from the University of Manchester and UCL. His principle interests are in the areas of Philosophy and Film, contemporary political thought, 20th Century French and German Philosophy, and Philosophy and Biology. He has recently been working on books on Philosophy and Horror and the nature of political utopias in the contemporary world.
