Announcing Nanjing Lectures
Jan 12, 2020
Bernard Stiegler’s Nanjing Lectures 2016-2019 address the relationship of Platonic metaphysics to the age of ‘post-truth’, the shift from biopower to neuropower in platform capitalism, and the need for a new epistemology, one that would be neither materialist nor idealist but hyper-materialist.
