Foucault & Deleuze

with 4 comments

Heading to Purdue University for a conference on Foucault & Deleuze. All the other speakers have done great work in one or the other (or both), so am very much looking forward.

I will try to rise to the occasion with a paper on the status of critique in F & D. The idea is to make sense of the idea of critique beyond (or outside of the sway of) the dialectic. Critique is experimental not dialectical for F & D. An experiment works on problems and responses, and thereby avoids the work of negation.

  2. Thanks, Dirk. The conference was a fine time indeed. There will be a video available, from what I know, but not sure when. The conference organizers can tell you.
