Dr Dominic Gregory (Sheffield) – Visual Content, Expectations, and the Outside World

Dominic Gregory teaches Philosophy at the University of Sheffield. He has written on the logic, epistemology, and metaphysics of modality, but his work has lately focused upon various questions concerning distinctively sensory representations such as pictures and sensory mental images. His recent book Showing, Sensing, and Seeming (OUP 2013) develops a general account of the nature of the contents belonging to those representations: the book contains detailed philosophical examinations of sensory mental imagery and pictorial representation, and of memory, photography, and analogous nonvisual phenomena.

Simon Morgan Wortham – Realism and psychosis

A Lecture of the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy’s 20th Anniversary Public Lecture Series, in association with the London Graduate School.

Professor Simon Morgan Wortham (The London Graduate School – Kingston University) - Realism and psychosis

In ‘Judiciousness in Dispute’ Lyotard gives us an image of the seventy-four year old Kant beset by a near-permanent head cold. Here, while the mind, through a sheer effort of will, has the capacity to overcome a variety of ailments, thought nevertheless causes it severe pain, a pain to which it is not just opposed, but which indeed accompanies its very operation. To the extent that this ambivalent relationship to pain is insurmountable, the ageing philosopher’s inflammation of the head is linked to what Kant himself describes as an involuntary spasmodic state in the brain, that is, a certain inability to maintain concepts, or to secure the unified consciousness of related representations, which Lyotard wants to suggest is fundamental or necessary, rather than merely contingent upon an ailment contracted late in life. To what extent is post-Kantian thought in pain? In what ways is such ‘pain’ prolonged in philosophies that seek a radical departure from Kant? For instance, in seeking an exit from the subjective representation of objects (for Lyotard, the source of Kant’s ‘pain’)? Does speculative materialism risk a certain lapse into a psychotic state that—as both Lacan and Kristeva suggest—may be arrested only through the onset of phobia?

Catherine Malabou – Relinquishing the transcendental? Speculative realism in question

in Academic Service - Archive by on December 4th, 2014

Event Date: 4 December 2014
Lecture Theatre E002, Granary Building,

Professor Catherine Malabou (CRMEP, Kingston University) – Relinquishing the transcendental? Speculative realism in question

Is contemporary continental European philosophy preparing itself to break with Kant? An attack upon supposedly indestructible structures of knowledge is occurring: finitude of the subject, the phenomenal given, a priori synthesis. “Relinquishing the transcendental” is the leading project of postcritical thinking in the early twenty-first century, in particular as it appears in Quentin Meillassoux’s book After Finitude. Some questions it seemed could never be raised after the Critique of Pure Reason are reappearing with a renewed force: Was Kant genuinely able to deduce categories instead of imposing them, to prove the necessity of nature, to found the difference between “a priori” and “innate”? Should we consider, on the contrary, that the “problem of Hume”—the existence of an irreducible contingency of the world—was never settled by the Transcendental Deduction? Such a claim implies that we have provided a sufficiently convincing concept of the irregularity of the laws of nature and of the possibility of a totally different world. Does After Finitude elaborate such concepts?

Peter Osborne – Use! Value! Exchange! Inside and outside relations of exchange

in Academic Service - Archive by on November 20th, 2014

Event Date: 20 November 2014
Lecture Theatre E002, Granary Building,
Central Saint Martins,
London N1C 4AA

The Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) and the London Graduate School in collaboration with Art and Philosophy at Central Saint Martins present:

Opening Lecture of the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy’s 20th Anniversary Public Lecture Series, in association with the London Graduate School.

Professor Peter Osborne (CRMEP) – Use! Value! Exchange! Inside and outside relations of exchange

Borrowing its title from the 2010 film by Phil Collins centred on the teaching of a class on Marx’s Capital to young people in eastern Germany, after reunification, this talk will reflect upon the revival of interest in Marx’s critique of political economy, its continuing – indeed, increasing – relevance to the social experience of capitalist societies, and the possibilities of a new philosophical interpretation of Capital, centred on its complex structure of temporal categories. In particular, drawing on Walter Benjamin’s deployment of a proliferating variety of forms of cultural and political use-values (entertainment-value, exhibition-value, consumer-value, cult-value, connoiseur-value, authority-value and, crucially, education-value – Lehrwert), attention will be paid to the dialectic of use-value and exchange-value internal to the commodity form and the problematic of the political function of cultural use-values.
