*UPCOMING PHILOSOPHY CLUB MEETING!*
Our own Edward Ershbock will present his paper "Unique Historical Entities: the ethics of extinction in code and essence"
Friday, May 17 - 5pm
Smith Memorial Student Union Rm. 236
Categorical thinking pervades everything from ethics to feminist ideology to many forms of scientific inquiry. Borrowing from Deleuze and Delanda, I present the idea that unique historical entities- that is, those entities that are unique in the sense that they have both a beginning and a potential end- can be given an ethical standing in the context of an interrelated, contingent lifeworld of morphogenetic intensities. I argue that the value of these entities consists in non-categorical frameworks, rather than transcendent categorical imperatives.
