Synopsis: Once upon a writ(h)ing flesh-wrought wound, sharp in sense, touched, stripped down to drip epidermic God-blush of moon complex-ion cluster, there were timeless tantra stasis voices, and in all to awl in/to be-hold y-our breath for a nested script-ink of blood type(s) emerging from and as a uni-verse dancing around the HBO television series, True Blood.
This book is a collection of essays from twenty-eight student interpreters (stern dents) that comprised Professor Lucio Privitello s Fall 2010 GAH course, Philosophies of Life and Death, otherwise known as True Blood and Philosophy at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, where they met twice a week. The goal was to analyze the pleasure of watching True Blood and to see how much knowledge that pleasure could withstand. The course revolved around a hefty collection of readings from a broad cultural base, along with specific lectures on and around these interpretive tools. The six sections represent a particular area of focus on the series and emerged after the individual chapters were compiled. Each essay is a freely chosen personal investigation.
Join us and be turned as Plato s Socrates once intimated and in the fantastic and the philosophical, transcend the common conceptions of a course, while enjoying these examples where apprenticeships in creativity take hold. Here, pedagogical reality enters an-other phase and depth. Here is where things get real. Here, everything has more chances...take one.
About the Author:
Lucio Angelo Privitello is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion and Coordinator of the Philosophy and Religion program at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. He is also President of the Classical Humanities Society of South Jersey (CHSSJ), and Fellow of the ICHS and The Examined Life. Prof. Privitello holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Villanova University (2003), an M.A. in Philosophy from Villanova (2001), an M.A. in Philosophy from Temple University (1986), and a B.F.A. in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design (1981). In Italy he earned a Diploma Superiore in Ceramics and Design from the Art Institute of Grammichele, Sicily (1977), and was an apprentice in painting and sculpture for five years with Maestro Giuseppe Benassi in Parma, Italy.
It has always been a dream to share my cultural background to its fullest. In 1972, while living and studying in Sicily, I was introduced to my first text in the history of philosophy. The text was Plato s Republic, Book VII; and I was sitting with my uncle, Professor Gino Coppoletta on the slopes of the volcano Etna. Through him my introduction to Plato, Empedocles, and the native Sophist Gorgias came alive amidst the backdrop of a mountain of lava where against so many odds plush vegetation breaks through and lives are lived against the shoulders of destructive and creative power. What an ideal classroom those slopes proved to be. It is the apprenticeship to such forces that I seek to create and share with my classes. I am convinced, as George Santayana put it, that half of our standards come from our first masters, and the other half from our first loves. I have been extremely lucky in both these departments, and work my standards because of their lasting lessons in an artistic-philosophical form of life.
At Stockton College I have lectured and facilitated mini-seminars for The Examined Life series, entitled Education and the Art of Teaching: The Apprenticeship in Ideals in Plato s Socrates, along with a presentation on Plato s use of fables. I have also presented a lecture for the Classical Humanities Society of South Jersey, and lectured on Hesiod s Theogony, entitled In Union with Love: A Mytho-genealogy of Eros in Hesiod s Theogony, and most recently lectured on The Classics in Marcel Proust s In Search of Lost Time.
My publications range from articles in classical American philosophy (Chauncey Wright, and Josiah Royce), French philosophy and literature (Georges Bataille), Italian Cinema, Sicilian Literature, and French philosophy (Visconti, Lampedusa, Deleuze), along with International and National Conference presentations from Ancient Greek Philosophy, Pedagogy, Aesthetics, and Humor Studies. Within the Philosophy and Religion Program I teach Ancient Greek Philosophy, History of Modern Western Philosophy, Introduction to Philosophy, a Senior Seminar entitled Volumes and Edges in Contemporary Philosophy, and have run many Independent Studies (Hegel, Hobbes, Sade/Masoch, Creativity and Creations), and an upper level course on Nietzsche. My General Arts and Humanities courses (GAH) are The Ways of Love, Humor s Logic and Laughter s Wisdom, In the Animal s Image, and Philosophies of Life and Death, otherwise known as the True Blood and Philosophy course.
