Disentangling the Phoenix Complex with Michael Marder / ARIA ŠUM POD

    • Arts

In this third ARIA transmission, Michael Marder disentangles the phoenix complex and takes us on a journey through the mechanisms of natural and social reproduction and replication, especially those ingrained in our individual and collective lives. Along the way, we survey and explore the limits, both internal and external, to the seamless phoenix-like reconstitution of the same (organism, psyche, society, environment) across the gap of death, total destruction and devastation.

Michael Marder is an Ikerbasque Research Professor at the Department of Philosophy at the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU), Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. His writings span the fields of ecological theory, phenomenology, and political thought. Find his latest book The Phoenix Complex at MIT press.
