Bence Nanay: Desire Infection

Lecture by Bence Nanay (University of Antwerp and Peterhouse, Cambridge) organised by the Department of Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy

Some of our beliefs are based on what we see. But some others are based on what I have heard from someone else. These beliefs are based on testimony. The aim of this paper is to explore the equivalent of testimony for desires – a phenomenon I call ‘desire infection’. The aim of the paper is...(continue reading...)

Lecture: Art and Politics in the Work of Alain Badiou

Over the past two decades Alain Badiou has emerged as the most widely read and prominent French thinker. Badiou’s work covers such vast questions as ontology, truth, aesthetics and love. But perhaps foremost Badiou’s thinking is placed under the sign of politics. In his work, Badiou formulates a radical emancipatory politics – a politics of radical equality, a contemporary communism.

In his lecture, Joost de Bloois (UvA) will provide an introduction to the philosophy of Alain Badiou. In particular, he will explore the (possible) nexus between art and politics in Badiou. Can we speak, with Badiou, of a ‘communism in the arts’?  

The lecture is organized by Faculty of Arts (KCM) and the Faculty of Philosophy (ESPF, GF) - Thijs Lijster and Eddo Evink

Congres: Nieuw Licht op Leo Polak

Tweedaags congres (donderdag 12 en vrijdag 13 maart), georganiseerd door de Faculteit Rechtsgeleerdheid

Dit congres gaat over een vurig pleitbezorger van de open samenleving en een van de peetvaders van het Nederlandse humanisme. Op zijn leven wordt nieuw licht geworpen door recent onderzoek. Het onlangs beschikbaar komen van zijn dagboeken, die hij veertig jaren lang bijhield, is daarbij één van de interessantste nieuwe bronnen.

Jurist en filosoof, vrijdenker en humanist, seksueel- en onderwijshervormer, hoogleraar en antifascist Leo Polak leeft in onze dagen vooral voort door zijn tragische dood. Al vóór de jodenvervolgingen werd de Groninger hoogleraar in de wijsbegeerte als politiek delinquent opgepakt, nadat de toenmalige foute rector van de Groningse Universiteit een brief van Polak met een anti-Duitse passage aan de bezetter had overhandigd. In december 1941 stierf Polak in Sachsenhausen.
