The Future of Technique
Ian James, University of Cambridge
Monday, December 9
Library Art Gallery
This paper will give an overview of my recently published book, The Technique of Thought: Nancy, Laruelle, Malabou, and Stiegler After Naturalism (University of Minnesota Press, 2019). It will review the arguments in this book concerning the recasting of the relation between philosophy and science in the work of the four contemporary French thinkers discussed and the implications of this for rethinking or re-orientating the relation of the arts to the sciences. The implications of this reorientation for future developments of critical practice and technique in the arts and humanities will be explored.
Presented by the Program in Cultures, Civilizations, and Ideas. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome to attend.
