Серия лекций профессора Джозефа Коэна

У наших партнеров, Школы философии НИУ ВШЭ, запланирована серия лекций профессора Джозефа Коэна из Университетского Колледжа Дублина, которые состоятся в Школе философии НИУ ВШЭ на следующей неделе.

В среду 7 декабря профессор Коэн прочтет лекцию "Sacrifice, Truth, Justice". Мероприятие состоится в 16:40 на факультете гуманитарных наук НИУ ВШЭ (ул. Старая Басманная, д. 21/4) в аудитории A - 404.

Abstract: This talk will focus on the intimate relationship between “sacrifice,” “truth” and “justice,” insofar as it structures the history of metaphysics. First, we shall seek to deploy in which manner
and according to which “law” these related concepts interact and, through their interrelation, organize the foundational question of the history of metaphysics, that is, the question pertaining to the
meaning of Being. Second, we will attempt to show how and why this very question, while persistently secluding its inherent “sacrifice,” opens up to what Heidegger called the “event” (Ereignis) of “truth.” And third, we will strive to reveal another idea of “justice” which incessantly differs from the sacrificial “event” of the truth of Being. Our central authors in this thinking will be Hegel, Heidegger and Derrida.

В пятницу 9 декабря проф. Коэн прочтет лекцию "Our Nihilism". Лекция также состоится в 16:40 на факультете гуманитарных наук в ауд.A - 408.

Abstract: “The desert is growing,” says Zarathustra. We shall consider this phrase by asking the question: What does the genealogical view discover and unravel, when it turns its scrutiny and lucidity towards the prevailing and supposedly “highest” values? It finds these consumed in nihilism. This word indeed harbors a plurality of meanings—and our reading will concentrate on two of them. First, nihilism designates the historical situation in which all the “highest” values are rendered null and void. Second, it marks theunfolding and internal logic of our contemporaneity which, in this sense, has been evolving since Plato—so nihilism corresponds to the very humanity of humankind. Far from seeking to eliminate nihilism, our approach will seek to develop, from this “most alarming of all guests,” the possibility of a knowledge and an ethics. Drawing on Nietzsche, Heidegger, Levinas and Derrida, our task will be to think and act through our nihilism and bring forth the possibility, if any, of its promise.
