Practice Research: At the intersections of thinking and doingA conversation between performance and philosophy Wednesday 7th December 6 – 8pmRoyal Central School of Speech and Drama In his essay Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil, in what appears to be an almost throw away comment, a moment in parenthesis, the philosopher Alain Badiou writes that ‘all thought is a practice, a putting to the test’ (Badiou 2002: 41). In this roundtable discussion we pick up from Badiou’s parenthetical…See More
