On Saturday 28th November at 6pm
Timothy Morton is Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English at Rice University. A member of the object-oriented philosophy movement, Morton’s work explores the intersection of object-oriented thought and ecological studies. In 2010, he adopted the computer science term ‘hyper objects’ (denoting n-dimensional non-local entities), to explain objects so massively distributed in time and space as to transcend localization. He gave the Wellek Lectures in Theory in 2014 and has collaborated with Björk and Olafur Eliasson. He is the author of Dark Ecology: For a Logic of Future Coexistence (Columbia, forthcoming), Nothing: Three Inquiries in Buddhism (Chicago, 2015), Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World (Minnesota, 2013), Realist Magic: Objects, Ontology, Causality (Open Humanities, 2013), The Ecological Thought (Harvard, 2010), Ecology without Nature (Harvard, 2007), eight other books and 140 essays on philosophy, ecology, literature, music, art, design and food. He regularly writes a blog, which can be found at www.ecologywithoutnature.blogspot.com
Event will be held in English, entrance is free.
