The third gathering of the Of Animacy Reading Group will focus on Isabelle Stengers’s delineation of the challenges inherent in considering nonhuman entities from a human perspective.
As well as unpacking the notion of human exceptionalism, the key text proposes an approach to political theory that refuses any all-encompassing definitions of the common good. The further reading shifts from philosophical manoeuvring to practical propositions for organising life worth living among capitalist ruins.
Excerpts of the text will be read together during the session to support open discussion
