Filosofikafeen Hybris

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.

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.
