Title

Philosophy Between the Lines: The Lost History of Esoteric Writing

Description

Audio recording of a lecture delivered by Arthur Melzer, Professor at Michigan State University, on November 1, 2019 as part of the Formal Lecture Series.

Melzer describes his lecture topic as follows: "Is it true that most philosophers prior to 1800 concealed their true opinions behind a veneer of conventional pieties? What is the empirical evidence for this claim? What motives could have led so many philosophers to engage in such strange behavior? And why does this strike mainstream scholars today as preposterous?"
