Events for the Week: Timothy Morton’s Hyperobjects and the Return of Evan McMullen’s the Bridge
Hey beautiful people,
We had a wonderful Viewquake Book Club session earlier today, discussing Timothy Morton’s Hyperobjects. Timothy will be coming to The Stoa tomorrow (Monday), to field our questions. John Vervaeke - who gave the “meaning crisis” hyperobject its name - will be the first one to ask Timothy a question.
Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World w/ Timothy Morton. October 3rd @ 12:00 PM ET. Patreon event.
This session will be followed by the return of Evan McMullen's The Bridge, starting his 5-part Philosopher-in-Residence series called …
The Trolls Under the Bridge: Intersubjective Parasitology, Computational Demonology, and Things That Go BUMP in the Dark Night of the Soul w/ Evan McMullen. October 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st @ 6:00 PM ET. RSVP here.
The series description …
Every complex ecosystem evolves parasites. This niche is not absent from the ecosystems created by the intersubjective interaction between minds, but in the transition from older, traditional ontologies for understanding the mind and its relationship to reality to new, more “scientific” paradigms, we seem to have lost most of our ability to perceive and relate to the intersubjective phenomena our ancestors might have called “demons.” Evan returns to the Stoa for a 5-part series to discuss these phenomena, since their relevance in terms of our daily life experience and the generators of political conflict is becoming more obvious and relevant.
Here is what is happening at The Stoa’s wisdom gym this week:
Collective Journaling. Monday to Friday. @ 8:00 AM ET. Patreon event. 90 mins.
