Philosophy Forum 30/11/2017 -Peter Wolfendale: Prometheanism.

Dear All

owing to the incompleteness (though is still interesting if anyone wants to read it) of ‘Prometheanism and Rationalism‘ might I suggest we also look at Rationalist Inhumanism (also by Wolfendale) and the already mentioned  ‘The_Reformatting_of_Homo_Sapiens‘.

The meeting is in the usual UL102 at 14:15-15:45 and the reading is available here.

Philosophy Forum 9/11/2017-Timothy Morton: Hyperobjects

Dear All

following last week’s re-examination of object-oriented-ontology (OOO as it likes to be known) via Morton, the forum will now try to look a little deeper at his notion of a ‘hyperobject’.

To this end I propose we read part of his handily titled book on exactly this topic (Hyperobjects, philosophy and ecology after the end of the world). I propose we try to read the first two actual sections of the book as opposed to the introduction (which could be optional reading). These are entitled ‘Viscosity’ and ‘Nonlocality’ and run from pages 29-49.

The meeting will be in the usual UL102 14:15-15:45 and the reading is available here:  ‘Hyperobjects
