Perspective as Preoccupation

Tom Lee

Thursday 29th April, 2010, 3.30-5.30pm

Bon Marche Studio (UTS Bldg. 3, Lvl. 1, Rm. 105)

Presentation, 20m.

Here I take a look at various episodes in the prose fiction of W. G. Sebald where prothesis and practice contribute to perspective. This is part of a broader philosophical argument about what determines a perspective, and how things relate. I make use of the metaphysics of A. N. Whitehead and his “second-coming” in the work of contemporary philosophers of science, and by those in the field of science studies (Bruno Latour, and Isabelle Stengers, most notably).
