Our PI Erich Hörl (Lüneburg, SP 1) will be participating in this Virtual Symposium at Leiden University (3-4 December 2020).


Bernard Stiegler’s unexpected passing away in August 2020 left many things unfinished. His philosophical work, that had started by a seminal theory of technics as memory and evolved towards an interrogation of the automatic society, now examined from the perspective of anthropic and neganthropic tendencies of the world marked by pervasive AI, ultraliberalism and climate catastrophe. His influence went also beyond philosophy to many practical engagements, earlier with the arts (IRCAM, Pompidou), and recently with civil society actors that seek to empower people in ordinary everyday life (Pleine Commune) but also to influence the course of the world on the level of the UN.

In order to commemorate the span of this multifaceted work, but above all in order to probe its future, the Leiden University Center for Continental Philosophy (LCCP) and the Institute for Science in Society of the Radboud University of Nijmegen summon a meeting of both academics and actors from civil society.
