Tonight: Canguilhem on Disease

17 Aug

Join us tonight as we switch from a discussion of math to a discussion of biology. Here we will take on an excerpt of Canguilhem’s, A Vital Rationalist.

As always, the text is available as a pdf HERE.

We will be meeting at 7:00pm at Tender Bar + Kitchen, in Lawrenceville (4300 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201)

As a reminder, even though we have moved to thematic groups, there is no expectation that people participate in every week, so even if you can’t commit to the whole summer, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.

Upcoming Readings:

Philosophy and Biology:

  • 8/17: Canguilhem, A Vital Rationalist: Chapter 14
  • 8/24: Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: “Rhizome”

Philosophy and Neuroscience:

  • 8/31: Malabou, What Should We Do With our Brain, Chapter 3
  • 9/7: Brassier, Nihil Unbound, Chapter 1
  • 9/14: Mark Solms, Brain and the Inner World, excerpt tbd

Looking ahead: keep your eyes open at the beginning October, for our fall reading group series on philosophy and horror. Texts will include: H.P. Lovecraft, Dylan Trigg, Eugene Thacker, Graham Harman, and many more!

Free Pdfs available HERE!!!
