    What Does Deleuze Mean By 'A Life'?

    What Does Deleuze Mean By 'A Life'?

    On this episode Craig, Will, Matt, and Adam take a close look at Gilles Deleuze's essay "Immanence: A Life", one of his final writings in which he describes immanence as a 'transcendental field'. Deleuze makes use of a lesser known work by Charles Dickens entitled “The Same Respected Friend in More Aspects Than One", casting the events of the story as a paradigmatic example of  how singularities and their manners of expression are distinct from processes of individuation. This discussion approaches some of the ethical implications that might be drawn from Deleuze's work on immanence.

    Césaire: Discourse on Colonialism

    Césaire: Discourse on Colonialism

    On this episode we're going to be looking at the work of Aime Césaire, focusing on his 1950 work Discourse on Colonialism, Césaire was a Martinician poet and communist politician who was one of the leading figures in the emancipatory movements of the French-speaking colonial sphere, as well as a poetic voice central to the cultivation of contemporary forms of radical political blackness. In the discourse on Colonialism he poetically and powerfully exposes the hypocrisy and ideological brutality of European colonialism and its inherent dehumanizing violence, a violence which not only debases the colonized, but also dehumanizes the colonizer in its fascist becomings. Césaire questions the abstractness of the universality that European ideology pretends to embody, and encourages us to imagine new living universalities of fraternity and abundance, shaping the coming horizon of the decolonial future.

    Schelling and Ecological Thinking with Chris Satoor

    Schelling and Ecological Thinking with Chris Satoor

    Craig, Adam, and Terry (from our last Kant episode) are joined by Schelling scholar Christopher Satoor to explore the early work of Friedrich Schelling. Schelling tried to deduce the harmony of the conditions of experience and the productive activity of nature, and through a dynamic of intensities and forces aimed to synthesize and transcend the Spinozistic and Kantian limits of knowledge.  We are guided through Schelling's naturphilosophie by Christopher Satoor, a doctoral candidate and faculty member over at York University whose paper “Becoming-Dynamic The Early Schelling and the Production of Nature”  covers of the early Schelling manuscripts from his First Outline to his philosophical dialogue Clara, and his fragments of writing on Plato's Timaeus. We discuss the points of continuity between Schelling's many philosophical systems, his place in the history of German Idealism, and how his dynamic realist ontology offers to re-orient the human in its relation to nature beyond anthropocentric chauvinisms.

    Baudrillard: Order of the Simulacra

    Baudrillard: Order of the Simulacra

    Terms like 'simulation' and 'hyperreal' are sometimes bandied about with respect to our experience of media--but what is the structure of these concepts as Baudrillard lays them out? Moreover, how can we use these concepts to make sense of the present global crises? Craig, Will, and Adam are joined by Cooper from Machinic Unconscious Happy Hour to tackle these questions.
