I happened to catch sight of this again recently, but Ryerson has up some great talks (click, too, on the history section) on Kant and evil, Levinas, deconstruction and the animal, and so forth, by great speakers.
Month: December 2017
Markus Gabriel interviewed
At The Ransom Note (new to me, too). It’s definitely not your typical academic interview (and it was a pleasure seeing Markus in action last weekend at a conference in Munich).
Society for Italian Philosophy CFP
The conference, to be held at RIT (Rochester, NY) March 23-5, 2018, has a CFP here. Abstracts due January 5.
Block Seminar in Augsburg, Germany, Today and Tomorrow (9:00-17:00)
The final title for the topic is Heidegger and Arendt on World, Nature, and “Earth Alienation.” I’m putting this here to refer students, but also for those interested. I’ll put up the lecture notes I typed up once I can give them at least something of an edit.
Here are the readings, then the resources I provided the students. (I do have recorded podcasts on the two major readings already, listed below):
The Last Interview of Nicos Poulantzas
Here at Legal Form with a helpful introduction. Poulantzas died just nine days before its original publication on 12 Oct., 1979, in the Italian communist journal, Rinascita.
