Bernd Bösel, University of Vienna
An Anatomy of Enthusiasm

This is the last of the series for this term.  A new seminar series and theme will return for Michaelmas Term in October 2013.

About the Speaker
Bernd Bösel studied philosophy, cultural anthropology and journalism at the University of Vienna. He gained his doctorate in 2007 with a thesis on “philosophy and enthusiasm,” and then wrote a thesis for the master’s program “Supervision and Coaching” at the Danube University Krems.

Since 2009 he has worked as an ethics instructor at the Fashion Institute of Vienna in Hetzendorf, and as a lecturer on ethics at the University of Vienna, and on aesthetics at the Art University of Linz. Central to his philosophical work is the question of how the culture of high emotions is compatible with the development of Western thought.
