Philosophy Forum 16/06/2016 -Nick Land: The Dark Enlightenment

Dear All

Speculative season has come to an end and now the forum turns its attention to a highly controversial document. Land’s ‘Dark Enlightenment‘ has been variously labelled as a highly astute critique of democracy and a manifesto for a dangerous neo-fascism.

Which of these is true (if indeed either of them are)? The answer will begin to be disclosed in Group Room 3, 14:15-15:45. I would suggest we read pages 1-19 first of all.

With best wishes

Graham

Philosophy Forum 09/06/2016: Quentin Meillasoux

Dear All

following on from the Spectral Dilemma I thought we could read Meillasoux’s contribution to the Speculative Realist event transcript. It can be found here. I believe he is on pages 408-435 (with his discussion leading up to the end of the document).

Meeting is in the usual place (UL102) 14:15-15:45.

For those who were at the meeting (and indeed for any who would care to see), I have written my expression that Meillasoux is an Erisian agent here.

With best wishes

Room tomorrow (02/06)

Dear All

I’m as sure as I can be that we don’t have the usual room tomorrow but didn’t spot it until earlier today. I’m going to try to book group room 3, but the portal seems to be down atm so I can’t be apodictically sure of that yet.

Assume group room three and I will find a way to guide you to the correct room should that not be the case.
