Check out the Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Network Videos

Unfortunately, the comps process does not lend itself to very consistent updating of a long-form blog. So I apologize for the increasing irregularity of my posts. That being said, I have been anything but un-busy for the past few months. To see one of the projects that has been taking up some of my non-blogging thought and effort, check out the videos from a few of the public lectures that my organization — The Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Network — has released. Topics include: the phenomenology of poverty, the post-anthropocene, and passion. Be sure to stay tuned for two other videos in-process (to be released asap): one on the failure of phenomenological realism, and one on the non-phenomenological side of Merleau-Ponty.

1.) Meillasoux + Malabou


2.) Meillasoux + Malabou (wrap up),  and Latour + Brassier

Deleuze Online Reading Group Redux

Anyone interested in an online reading group of Deleuze’s Nietzsche and Philosophy in June? It’s near the top of my “to read” list, and being fairly short, might not have the attrition rate that Difference and Repetition onfortunately had.

Send me an email or a message (or comment below) if you are interested.

It will most likely be Sunday nights at 10:00pm (EST) again, but that may be negotiable.
