THE FEELING OF LIFE:  An Argument With Reference To Derrida
Alexander García Düttmann

 
Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 4:30pm
East Common Room, Hart House, University of Toronto (St. George Campus)
7 Hart House Circle, Toronto

Is there a feeling of life, and if so, can deconstruction contribute to its elucidation? What is a deconstructionist's "feeling of life"? The lecture will show that there is a feeling of life precisely because life is traversed, and sustained, by a tension: everything happens only once and yet, precisely because it happens once, everything also happens more than once.

Alexander García Düttmann is Professor of Philosophy and Visual Culture at Goldsmiths College, London, UK. He is author of numerous books, including Visconti: Insights into Flesh and Blood (2008), Philosophy of Exaggeration (2007), Between Cultures: Tension in the Struggle for Recognition (2000), and At Odds with AIDS (1997), among others.
 
This free public lecture is made possible by the Department of Visual Studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga and the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery at Hart House. All are welcome.

Hart House is accessible by the West Entrance. Contact accessibility@harthouse.ca for accessibility inquiries.
