Darkness is Strongest near Light: concepts of catastrophe and liberation in the “Logic of Meaning”
The Stanislavsky Electrotheatre and the Center for New Philosophy present:
Darkness is Strongest near Light: concepts of catastrophe and liberation in the “Logic of Meaning” (Gilles Deleuze, The Logic of Meaning, M., 1995).
Speakers: Polina Khanova, Alexander Vileikis
These lectures are devoted to the work Gilles Deleuze did with co-authors and his transformations in their languages, texts, and logic. The course generally concerns the question of whether the timely can exist outside the potential; that is, can depths exist without surfaces? This questions was not answered in the texts of Deleuze, however, it contains new thoughts on the problem of the observer and the possibility of saying at least something about the outside world outside human categories.
The course format involves lectures in which a moderator opposes a speaker, building a dialogue and introducing his own conceptual framework. Lectures are given at the same time in Moscow and St. Petersburg: two halls are synchronized via Skype conference and thus are present simultaneously.
Course curators: Anton Syutkin (European University, St. Petersburg), Alexander Vileikis (Center for New Philosophy, Moscow).
