The Research Network for Philosophy and Technology together with the China Academy of Art launches an annual memorial lecture dedicated to Bernard Stiegler (1 April 1952-5 August 2020). Stiegler has been an advisor to the Network since its establishment in 2014, and has been a distinguished professor at the China Academy of Art from 2015-2019, where he developed a new agenda of research for art, philosophy and technology. The inaugural memorial lecture in 2021 starts with an opening address by Professor Gao Shiming, the president of the China Academy of Art, followed by a lecture by Professor Yuk Hui.

Bernard Stiegler, the Mystagogue

“διὰ ταῦτά τοι, ὦ Διοτίμα, ὅπερ νυνδὴ εἶπον, παρὰ σὲ ἥκω, γνοὺς ὅτι διδασκάλων δέομαι.”

“For this reason, Diotima, as I just mentioned, I have come to you, knowing that I needed a teacher.” – Plato, Symposium, 207c

What does it mean to teach philosophy today? This question occupies a central position in Bernard Stiegler’s thinking and his practice. For him, to teach philosophy is to initiate, so that an individuation, or a quantum leap, could take place within and between the teacher and the participants. This memorial lecture traces a mystagogical thinking in Stiegler’s work, especially his reading of Plato and Simondon, in which one can claim a mystagogy without mysticism. This mystagogical thinking, present in philosophy and art, is also an antidote against the becoming herd in the consumerist society, which also means disindividuation.
– Yuk Hui
