At PICT: A week in Paris
Updated: Jul 9, 2020
Last week, I spent a fantastic and very busy week in Paris with the Paris Institute for Critical Thinking (PICT) speaking to full audiences at the Goethe-Institut Paris on Nietzsche, Bataille, and Irigaray and at the Maison des Associations Madeleine Reberioux in response to Professor Samir Gandesha's lecture on identity politics. PICT also conducted a joint seminar with the Centre for Critical Thought, University of Kent at their Paris School of Arts and Culture where I spoke about the transmission of philosophical legacies in and beyond the university. I'm looking forward to returning in a couple of weeks to teach a course for PICT on Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil. I really loved my time in Paris and can't wait to return to this community of people who practice what philosophy is really about: thinking for thinking's sake.
