We are creatures for whom diffi culty in understanding who we are
constitutes who we are. This is not the diffi culty of hard-to-discover
facts. Nor is it the diffi culty of a ‘pure’ conceptual investigation. It is
a weird diffi culty internal to our attempts to understand ourselves as
having lives. And, in trying to face the diffi culty – or in avoiding it –
we shape our lives.

In his Spinoza Lectures, collectively titled ‘The Idea of a Philosophical
Anthropology’, Jonathan Lear combines insights from philosophy and
psychoanalysis in an exciting fashion to analyze this diffi culty that
both constitutes who we are and makes us question who we are.

Jonathan Lear is the John U. Nef Distinguished Service Professor at the
Committee on Social Thought and in the Department of Philosophy
at the University of Chicago. He currently serves as Director of the
Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, a new research institute
within the University of Chicago. Lear trained in philosophy at
Cambridge University and The Rockefeller University. He later trained
as a psychoanalyst and has been working with low-fee patients for
thirty years.

After the publication of Radical Hope: Ethics in the Face of Cultural
Devastation
(2006), Lear was adopted into a Crow family, and he
spends time with his two Crow brothers talking about dreams, visions
and traditions. Among his other books are: Aristotle and Logical Theory
(1980), Aristotle: the desire to understand (1988); Love and its place in
nature: a philosophical interpretation of Freudian psychoanalysis
(1990),
Open minded: working out the logic of the soul (1998), Happiness, death
and the remainder of life
(2000), Therapeutic action: an earnest plea for
irony
(2003), Freud (2005), A case for irony (2011), and Wisdom won from
illness
(2017).
