Please join us for the next session of the Intellectual History Workshop this coming Thursday, November 2nd at 4:00pm in Classics 110, to welcome Martin Jay, Sidney Hellman Ehrman Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley.


Martin Jay is the author of a number of landmark works of intellectual history, including The Dialectical Imagination: A History of the Frankfurt School and the Institute of Social Research, 1923-50 (1973), Marxism and Totality: The Adventures of a Concept from Lukács to Habermas (1984),  Downcast Eyes: The Denigration of Vision in Twentieth-Century French Thought (1993), The Virtues of Mendacity: On Lying in Politics (2010) and, most recently, Reason After its Eclipse: On Late Critical Theory (2016). On Thursday, we will be discussing his as-yet unpublished paper “Historical Truth and the Truthfulness of Historians.” Professor Jay's visit is co-sponsored by the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society and the Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies (CEERES).
