Transcendental Subjectivity, Sexual Difference, Brain Sciences - A Masterclass with Slavoj Zizek


October 4 - 6, 2017 - Transcendental Subjectivity, Sexual Difference, Brain Sciences - A Masterclass with Slavoj Zizek - Birkbeck, University of London

Speaker: Slavoj Žižek, International Director, Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities

With the recent turn towards realism, the notion of transcendental subjectivity is (again) dismissed as philosophically outdated and politically harmful. Furthermore, the progress in brain sciences seems to render this notion irrelevant. But what if we still have to learn a lot from the transcendental approach? The two classes will examine how Lacan's teaching enables us to grasp sexual difference as the constitutive feature of transcendental subjectivity, plus how recent advances in brain sciences continue to rely on transcendental presuppositions. The question to be discussed is: how will the new results of brain sciences, as well as the digitalization of our lives, affect subjectivity, especially in its political dimension?

The Masterclass will be spread over two sessions:

1. Wednesday 4 October, 2-4pm
2. Friday 6 October, 2-4pm
