Technology and thought – lecture cycle on media philosophy
Even the most honest opinion, motive or evaluation fades away, softens and withers when we label it as subjective. Face to face with the world we call for reliability and impartiality of objectivity – it is a sharper and stronger weapon. Yet we live in a world where such underrated subjectivity is promoted as a leading and moving force. Based on Deleuze’s interpretation of David Hume the lecture aims to draw attention to the character of the subjects, its laws, and particularities. In free subsequence to the whole cycle, fiction and bias are presented as essential constructive elements of reality.
