Testimonials

Feedback on previous Other Life courses.

Alex Talan

Composer, Los Angeles
"I appreciated Justin's ability to clarify and suggest practical applications of Deleuze. I enjoyed the lectures and will be revisiting them in the future. The course discussions were well facilitated, encouraging an atmosphere of fellowship and open dialogue."

Raven Connolly

Hostess of The Stoa, Portland
"My thinking was challenged, exposed, and reshaped... Justin's social network brings together rogue intellectuals, experimental musicians, martial arts teachers, conceptual artists and entrepreneurs from all over the globe. Collaborations have outlasted the length of the course."

Kevin McCoy

Artist, New York City
"Justin brings people and ideas together in a great way. He sets up a dynamic conversation between his co-teachers and the course participants, one that continues long after the class is finished."

How it works

Leo Strauss (1899–1973) was a German-Jewish political theorist who influenced everyone from Peter Thiel to Paul Wolfowitz and a whole school of academic political theorists. The purpose of this course is to explain and develop most of Strauss's main themes: German Postwar Philosophy, Nihilism, Reason and Revelation, Classical vs. Modern Political Philosophy, Reading and Writing, Tyranny, Education, and Persecution.

Community. After enrolling you will also receive an email inviting you to join a private community forum, accessible only to participants in the course.
Network. The private course community is hosted by IndieThinkers.org, a larger network of independent intellectuals and creators.
