Elizabeth Grosz: "Matter and life"

Hybris is proud to present Elizabeth Grosz, philosopher and professor at Rutgers University, New Jersey, who will give us a talk about the philosophical concept of becoming, one of the central questions of contemporary science.
Through what processes does life emerge from non-life? How can the relation between matter and life be understood? Is life of the same substance as matter? Is conceptuality or ideality a function of matter; or is it a new order of materiality? Trying to answer these very big questions, with help from the works of Charles Darwin, Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze, Grosz will try to develop a non-materialist account of materiality.


Filosofistudentene på høyden vil med Filosofikafeen bringe faget utenfor instituttets vegger og invitere ulike interessante stemmer til å gi filosofiske perspektiver på tema som fortjener en ny innfallsvinkel.

Kveldene vil være åpne fora for filosofisk refleksjon, gjerne i møte med andre fag. Filosofikafeen er alt annet enn en ex.phil-forelesning. filosofikafeen.b.uib.no
