Join us for an evening with Eric Jarosinski, a former professor who has gone on to lead a very different life as a #FailedIntellectual online.
In exploring the comic potential of German language, literature, and philosophy on Twitter, his feed NeinQuarterly has gained a highly diverse global audience.
In his talk, moderated by Agon Maliqi, Eric will address the potential (and limitations) of adapting traditional modes of philosophical thought to a new technology with its own complex language, codes, and conventions. Throughout, he will discuss a strategy not of simplifying or popularizing philosophy, but of demystifying its terminology, gently toppling its idols, and playfully unsettling its authority.
The talk will take place on Thursday (2nd of June 2016) in dit’ e nat’.
