Tomorrow (Monday): Deleuze’s “Rhizome”

23 Aug

Join us tomorrow night as we continue our discussion of philosophy and biology. Here we will take on an excerpt of Deleuze’s, A Thousand Plateaus: “Rhizome,” and try to figure out why Deleuze hates trees.

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:

  • 8/24: 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, Georges Canguilhem, Richard Kearney and many more!

Free Pdfs available HERE!!!
