SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Feb. 16 (EUROPE PRESS) –
Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (TEA) opens this Saturday at 12 noon the program ‘No-Todo: Criticism and Negativity’ with a conference by Peter Sloterdijk (Karlsruhe, 1947), one of the great philosophers of our time.
This new cycle of critical thinking, coordinated by the professor of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology of the University of La Laguna, Roberto Gil, is constituted as a place for reflection on the limits of knowledge.
In this first act, the German thinker will give the conference ‘Immune systems and criticism of the negativity between nature and culture’, in which he will give some clues about his conception of society as an immune system doomed to failure.
To attend this presentation, which is free but with limited capacity, prior registration is required by sending an email to [email protected] indicating name, ID and a contact telephone number.
Far from the historical reign of technology and scientific knowledge of the last century, the current era, characterized by the imminence of climate disaster, shortages and the arrival of new pandemics, has made our classical conceptions of nature and culture obsolete. As a journey into the inner world of the very idea of civilization, Sloterdijk will reflect on the blind spots of capitalist progress in a setting that has witnessed its own twilight for decades.
Professor of Aesthetics and Philosophy at the University of Karlsruhe, Peter Sloterdijk has achieved global popularity thanks to his unique reading of contemporary cynicism, his judgment on late capitalism and his commitment to a spherology that challenges ‘the ontology of one’. The philosopher is the author of essential books such as ‘Critique of Cynic Reason’ (1983), ‘In the Interior World of Capital’ (2005) and the ‘Spheres’ trilogy (1998, 1999 and 2004).
The Not-Everything critical thinking program aims to question the foundations of the regimes of truth that govern reality. Starting from the failure of established knowledge, the opening of a space is sought where visions of the world as a ‘total work’ can be left behind. To this end, this cycle of conferences and dialogues, which will run throughout this year, will feature authors from inside and outside the Archipelago who, from their respective reflective fields, produce knowledge with an awareness of its incommensurability.
