History of Philosophy
VO 2

Enhanced sensibility for the relevance and explosiveness of the philosophy of technology and media in the context of selected key texts and marginal texts; detailled comprehension of the changing - philosophical - relationships between technology and media; further assessment of the philosophy of technology and media in considertation of both theories and practices.

"... our writing tools are also working on our thoughts", remarked Nietzsche once in a letter to Köselitz from the year 1882. In considertation of this pointed - and meanwhile often quoted - aphorism, this course is dedicated to the task of discussing the question, following a variety of digressions, what technology and media might be in philosophical terms. For that matter positions like those of Nietzsche, Benjamin, Heidegger, Adorno, Anders, McLuhan, Flusser, Virilio, Kittler, Haraway etc. shall be presented, contrasted and reviewed in the wider context of historical developments and events.

Media-supported lecture units followed by discussions. 



Will be announced in each lecture unit.

Montags 10.15-11.45 Uhr - genaue Termine siehe LV 602015, Hörsaal 2
