PHILOSOPHY COLLOQUIUM

 

Friday February 8 at 3:00pm in Mackinac Hall BLL-110 (Basement)

Peter Zhang

 

Grand Valley State University School of Communications

 

Will be giving a talk entitled:

 

 

Toward an Interality-Oriented Philosophy (IOP) of the Digital

ABSTRACT: This presentation examines the digital through the lens of interality and Flusser's thought. It claims that the digital affords an interological sensibility. It sees the Hive as a mythical symbol of the digital, which constitutes a new khora or milieu that reconfigures everything in it. Some of the key notions to be elaborated in the presentation include: intermind, the virtual, the digital doppelgänger, control and becoming, the acceleration of reality, etc. The presentation calls for openness toward no knowledge when humanity is faced with the unknown so it can improvise a new existential gyroscope adequate to the new real.
