Jared Holley: Eighteenth Century Epicureanism and the Reception of Rousseau's Second Discourse

 

Join us on Thursday, May 16, for a discussion of the work in progress of Jared Holley (University of Cambridge, Ph. D candidate in the Dept of Politics). To get a copy of his paper, entitled Eighteenth Century Epicureanism and the Reception of Rousseau's Second Discourse, and to RSVP, please contact Biliana Kassabova (bilianak@stanford.edu)

Jared Holley is a PhD Candidate at the University of Cambridge, Department of Politics and International Studies, and visiting Gimon Fellow in French Political Economy at the Stanford University Libraries. He received an MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History from Cambridge in 2009, after having completed a BA in History at the University of Victoria. From September, he will be a Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the Classics of Social and Political Thought at the University of Chicago. This paper has roots in various components of his doctoral dissertation, entitled Eighteenth-Century Epicureanism and the Political Thought of Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

As usual, we will be meeting in Pigott Hall, Room 216. We will start at 4pm with light snacks and drinks, and proceed with a brief presentation, followed by discussion, ending around 5:30pm.
