Philosophy forum 16/8/18: The Language of things: Walter Benjamin’s Primative Thought

Dear All

next week I thought we could just recap Benjamin’s fascinating linguistic theorising with this paper.

The meeting will begin in the UL102 before retiring to the engine shed for a small drink to celebrate forum member Geoff Matthew’s birthday.

Philosophy Forum 9/8/2018 -Martin Tay: Taking on the Stigma of Authenticity: Adorno’s Critique of Genuineness.

Dear All

in response to Benjamin’s notion of aura I thought it might be interesting to look at Adorno’s response as mediated through this paper by Martin Tay.

The meeting will be in UL102 14:15-15:45.
