I’m organizing a class by Alex Galloway at the Public School New York. Continuing our work with him from There is nothing less than the act of fleeing (2009), French Philosophy Today (2010) and Dark Nights of the Universe (2012), this will be another exciting event.

Class leader: Alexander R. Galloway

With a flurry of new translations in recent years, François Laruelle is being read more widely in the English speaking world. This class will begin with an overview of Laruelle and his project of non-philosophy, followed by three sessions that explore Laruelle’s influence on theories of digitality, art, and ethics.

 

 

Saturday, April 6, 7:30pm — PHILOSOPHY AND NON-PHILOSOPHY

  • What is philosophy?
  • The philosophical decision and the principle of sufficient philosophy
  • The correlationist principle

 

Friday, April 12, 7:30pm — THE DIGITAL

  • Digital philosophy
  • Analogue philosophy
  • Immanence and parallelity

 

Saturday, April 20, 7:30pm — ART

  • The end of representation
  • Immanence and nonrepresentational aesthetics
  • White and black universes

 

Friday, April 26, 7:30pm — ETHICS

  • The event
  • The political and the ethical
  • Generic insufficiency and casting

 

Each session will consist of a short opening presentation by the class leader (20-30 minutes max) followed by seminar discussion.

 

Recommended readings for each session will be circulated in advance.
