Lecture: Imagination, technologies et infini

Yuk Hui will give his talk “Imagination, technologies et infini” at École Normale Supérieure in Paris. Here is the details of the event (in French):

Partant des Lettres sur l’éducation esthétique de l’homme de Schiller et discutant les thèses de Kant sur l’esthétique, nous proposerons de problématiser la relation entre imagination et imagination artificielle au regard d’une quatrième synthèse qui serait celle de l’imagination transcendantale ou synthèse prothétique. C’est alors la notion d’infini qui permettrait de distinguer les deux imaginations, infini qui se développe en Occident et en Orient de façon distincte.

Yuk Hui studied Computer Engineering and Philosophy at the University of Hong Kong and Goldsmiths College in London, with a focus on philosophy of technology. Currently he is associate lecturer at the institute of philosophy and art (IPK) and researcher at the Institute for Culture and Aesthetics of Media (ICAM) at the Leuphana University Lüneburg; he is also a visiting associate professor at the China Academy of Art. Previous to that, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Research and Innovation of the Centre Pompidou in Paris and a visiting scientist at the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories in Berlin. He has published on philosophy of technology and media in periodicals such as Metaphilosophy, Research in Phenomenology, Parrhesia, Angelaki, Cahiers Simondon, Deleuze Studies, Intellectica, Krisis, Implications Philosophiques, Jahrbuch Technikphilosophie, Techné, Zeitschrift für Medienwissenschaft, Appareil, New Formations,Parallax, etc. He is editor (with Andreas Broeckmann) of 30 Years after Les Immatériaux: Art, Science and Theory (2015), and author of On the Existence of Digital Objects (prefaced by Bernard Stiegler, University of Minnesota Press, March 2016), The Question Concerning Technology in China. An Essay in Cosmotechnics (Urbanomic, December 2016).
