Oleg Aronson A Time for Revolution
Oleg Aronson is a philosopher, media theorist, author of numerous articles and books on aesthetics and the theory of art and cinema. His books include Communicative Image. Movie. Literature. Philosophy (UFO, 2007, Andrei Bely Prize); Cinema and Philosophy: From Text to Image (RAS, Institute of Philosophy, 2018), etc.
Aronson’s report will highlight general trends characteristic of the Great French Revolution, the October Revolution in Russia, and the events in Paris in 1968. It will allow us to approach a formal understanding of processes that transform social relations (equality rather than a class society) to make material that which was previously seen as abstract, but which acquire new meaning in the actions of the masses (freedom, justice), and, finally, human involvement in ongoing processes that extend not only beyond the limits of a single human life, but also of man-made history. In the latter case, revolution emerges as an indicator of change that affects the very nature of man.
