François Laruelle Public Lecture May 9th, 2012, London
Professor François Laruelle will give a public lecture entitled, ‘Towards a Philosophy Deemed “Contemporary”‘, on May 9th 2012.
This will take place as an evening lecture 6-8pm, on May 9th in Swedenborg Hall, 20/21 Bloomsbury Way, London WC1A 2TH. The event is open to members of the public (no reservation required, but do come early to get a seat).
Professor Laruelle has taught at both the University of Paris X and the Collège international de philosophie, and is a Visiting Professor at the London Graduate School, Kingston University, London. He is the author of over twenty books, including Les philosophies de la différence (1986), Principes de la non-philosophie (1996), Le Christ futur (2002), and, most recently, Le Concept de non-photographie and Anti-Badiou (both 2011) – all of which have either just appeared or will soon appear in English translation. A number of essay collections on Laruelle will also appear this year.
This talk is part of the ‘Laruelle in London’ series of workshops and lectures organised each semester by the London Graduate School, Kingston University. The purpose of this series is both to cover the conceptual background to Non-Standard Philosophy and to explore its consequences throughout the arts, sciences, and humanities.
