  • About

    Professor Bergmann's interests include continental philosophy - especially Hegel, Nietzsche, Sartre, and Existentialism generally - and also social and political philosophy, philosophical anthropology, and philosophy of culture. His on Being Free (1977) was issued in a paperback edition in 1978 and had twelve printings. Professor Bergmann founded the Center for New Work in Flint in 1981, and has developed a number of suggestions about work as a calling and a vehicle of self-realization, in rotation with mainstream employment, and involving a self-sufficiency that technology itself makes possible. He resides in Ann Arbor and continues to write and lecture on the practical, social, and cultural implications of philosophical thought.
