New French Thought

Very interesting set of seminars at The Public School in New York later this month. They focus on new French thought – that is outside of the 1960s/70s generation – and the thinkers covered are Catherine Malabou, Bernard Stiegler, Mehdi Belhaj Kacem, Quentin Meillassoux and François Laruelle. Of these, Stiegler and Meillassoux are probably the best known; Laruelle and Malabou are beginning to be translated, but Kacem is probably the unknown quantity. I’ve not read any of his work, but his L’esprit du nihilisme: Une ontologique de l’Histoire has been sitting in the Amazon.fr basket for a while…

You can find the official details here; thanks to Speculative Heresy for the info.

Update 2nd November: audio for the lectures here.
