Peter Herbst Seminars 2015

Deep Time: On Being Geologically Human

Tuesday 5th May 12:15 – 1.45pm, refreshments to follow

Speaker:  Professor David Wood

Abstract:
If we humans are responsible for inaugurating a new geological age (the Anthropocene), does that have implications for how we think about ourselves? Does it not intensify what Nietzsche saw as the problem of affirming life under the burden of history?

David Wood is W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University. His books includes Time after Time (2007); The Step Back: Ethics and Politics After Deconstruction(2005); Thinking After Heidegger (2002);The Deconstruction of Time (2001), and Philosophy at the Limit (1990). In 2015 he is giving the 'Thinking Out Loud' Public Lecture series in Sydney at the NSW State Library.
