This course will delve into the issue of philosophy—the pursuit of wisdom (σοφία) out of love (φιλο)—in relation to futurity. What is ‘philosophy’ and what is a ‘philosopher’?; do these have a future?, and if so,
who and/or what would they be? Is ‘the philosopher’
and is ‘philosophy’ necessarily human and/or human-centered?—perhaps, if love (φιλο) and wisdom (σοφία) are human and only human. Can there be, for example, ‘artificial’ or ‘post-human’ wisdom?, ‘artificial’ or ‘post-human’ love?, an ‘artificial’ or ‘post-human’ agent in the loving pursuit of wisdom? What would such wisdom and what would such love/loving-pursuit be like?—would it be recognizable as such to the human, for instance; or would such recognition be a symptom of compromised wisdom?”
