“Isonomia, Democracy and the Birth of a ‘citizen-caste’: Reading Kojin Karatani’s Story of Ancient Philosophy”

The Philosophy Group and Alliance Francaise Delhi invite you to a public lecture by Prof. Soumyabrata Choudhury.

Language : English/Hindi

About the Speaker : Professor Soumyabrata Choudhury teaches at the School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University. He has authored Theatre, Number, Event: Three Studies on The Relationship of Sovereignty, Power and Truth (IIAS, 2013) and coedited The Weight of Violence: Religion, Language, Politics (OUP, 2015) and published numerous articles on ancient Greek liturgy, the staging of Ibsen, Psychoanalysis, Nietzsche, Schiller and Hegel. He has been a fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, India. He’s directed theatre productions based on the works of Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, Premchand, Mudraraksha, Artaud, Buchner, Kafka and Prakash, and has acted in a number of productions. 

About the Organization : The Philosophy Group is a forum dedicated to the exploration of the core questions of philosophy, drawing upon the range and depth of different philosophers, schools and timelines. It is an attempt to institute a practice of ‘doing philosophy’, working at the intersection of critical thought and action, aimed at establishing a certain philosophical praxis. To this end, we shall engage with works by recognized philosophers, and also seek to create newer concepts and lines of flight, in order to counter the stasis of uncritical didacticisms. The group’s efforts are directed towards ethical scholarship, invested in a non-hierarchical ‘minor’ language, to sharpen philosophy’s tools against the dogmatic slumber brought upon by present and future amnesias. It is therefore a nomadic group committed to participative and shared exchange and examination of philosophical concepts and ideas. The Philosophy Group invites scholars with sustained interest in the longue durée of philosophy.
