Philosophy Symposium The Philosophy of Jonathan Lear In an age of
specialization, Jonathan Lear is a philosopher and public intellectual of
rare distinction, whose work ranges over many diverse areas of philosophy,
social life and personal psychology. He has published books and articles on
ancient Greek philosophy, ethics, social philosophy, literature, moral
psychology, and Wittgenstein. Lear’s practice and thinking in
psychoanalysis, gives his writings a depth of psychological insight often
missing in contemporary philosophy.

Committee on Social Thought and in the Department of Philosophy and the
Director of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society at the
University of Chicago. He is also a practicing psychoanalyst and serves on
the faculties of the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute and the Western New
England Institute for Psychoanalysis. His books include: *Aristotle and
Logical Theory; Aristotle: The Desire to Understand; Love and Its Place in
Nature: A Philosophical Interpretation of Freudian Psychoanalysis;
Therapeutic Action: An Earnest Plea for Irony; Happiness, Death and the
