Owing to the recent Dundee conference and the continuing importance of German Idealism for contemporary Continental philosophy and radical theology we have decided that our next book event will by Markus Gabriel and Slavoj Žižek’s Mythology, Madness and Laughter: Subjectivity in German Idealism [Amazon US] [Amazon UK]. The book came out in 2009 and puts major thinkers in German Idealism in conversation with many contemporary problems. For those who are very au courant there is even an implicit debate between Hegel, Schelling and Quentin Meillassoux.
The event will begin on May 10th, giving those who want to participate a month to get a copy of the book. We’re still experimenting with pacing, but I think our Malabou event was a bit too leisurely and so am thinking we will do this event every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
