The Death and Life of Radical Thought:

Thinking Backwards, Reverse Mutations, and the Animal State

 

Following a non-human lead (in philosophy, art, and politics), this presentation will look at the general question of ‘reverse thinking’. Its aim is to demonstrate the possibility that what some might discount as a ‘regressive’ or ‘reverse mutation’ can actually be seen as a non-standard type of radicalism. It is not merely that we must ‘go backwards in order to go forwards’, but that thinking in reverse might itself, now, be the only thought capable of ‘moving forward’ at all. An alternative meaning to ‘radical philosophy’ will be proffered, one that calls for an apparent regress to the ‘animal state’ – a ‘wild’ or ‘outsider’ thinking that offers a genuine progression out of the cultural, philosophical and political dead-ends that surround us.

A drinks reception will follow.
