(Lecture) Thinking community today: Human co-existence after Heidegger
2 May 2017 @ 16:00 - 17:30
The Center for Contemporary European Philosophy cordially invites you for a talk by Tina Chanter (Kingston):
“Who is the peasant woman? Gender and old shoes: Heidegger, Van Gogh and Rancière”
Heidegger’s critiques the essentially Aristotelian distinction between form and matter, recasting it in terms of the strife of world and earth. I elaborate Heidegger’s effort in ‘The Origin of the work of Art’ to overcome the pervasive influence of the form/matter distinction in aesthetic thinking, and suggest that his account marks an ultimately inadequately radical departure from the guiding distinction of matter and form, which he claims has been a hallmark of the metaphysical tradition of aesthetics that he sees as preceding him. I suggest that the form/matter distinction is embedded in a series of other problematic distinctions, which Heidegger does not manage to dislodge. Drawing on Rancière, amongst others, I show that Heidegger’s effort to overcome a metaphysical aesthetics remains ensconced in a further series of distinctions which themselves are in need of displacement and rethinking, not the least of which is the differentiation of feminine and masculine.
