Bernard Stiegler: Media Philosophy Lecture Series
Follow the link below to get the full audio recordings of lectures 1-4 of the 5 lecture ‘Media Philosophy’ course delivered by French philosopher Bernard Stiegler at Goldsmiths College, University of London in February/March 2012. Lecture 5 has been postponed and will be held on 2nd May. We’ll put up a link to it after that.
Stiegler analyses and critiques work by Derrida, Deleuze and others in order to elaborate on the concept of bêtise (stupidity) in relation to his own theories about the dangers of monetarism and marketing, the pharmacological nature of technology and the responsibility of the University and educational institutions to counteract the ‘systemic stupidity’ currently embedding itself in society.
