Denise Ferreira da Silva : »Corpus Infinitum«

Video lecture: from Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 7 pm (CET)
Online conversation: Wednesday, November 25, 2020, 7 pm (CET)

In her lecture, Denise Ferreira da Silva attempts to establish an image that is not contained in the presuppositions and prescriptions of Immanuel Kant. Ferreira da Silva examines a way of thinking that departs from the onepistemological pillars of post-Enlightenment thinking (separability, determinacy, and sequentiality). In doing so, she arrives at an approach that does not presume a mind (in the sense of the Kantian »I believe«) or its separation from a body. This image allows for a theoretical basis for the assumption that every human and non-human existent is a body (corpus) without limits (infinitum).
