I have officially arrived in San Francisco for the summer, as part of my ongoing effort to never stay home long enough to feel settled. I’ve mentioned previously that I was interested in doing a reading group, and I’ve been asked by the Bay Area Public School if I would like to host it there. I was honored at the invitation and immediately accepted — but now the question is what to do.
The two options I am most interested in currently are either to work through Heidegger’s Contributions to Philosophy: On the Event or else do one or two early Agamben works (Language and Death and maybe something else). It strikes me that the first would obviously be much less immediately accessible and would probably require a format much more like a “class” where I would need to do some kind of lectures to get people up to speed — but maybe people would like that.
Bay Area denizens — would you be interested in participating in either or both groups? Do you have any advice for me as to which option to prefer? Should I be thinking in a totally different direction?
