The Theory Reading Group at Cornell University invites submissions for its
fourth annual interdisciplinary spring conference 

The Substance of Thought: Critical and Pre-Critical

featuring keynote speakers Simon Critchley (The New School for Social
Research) and Alberto Toscano (Goldsmiths, University of London)

Cornell University
Ithaca, New York
April 10th-12th, 2008
http://www.arts.cornell.edu/trg/conf2008.html

The last few decades have witnessed a struggle within continental
philosophy between those thinkers who accept Immanuel Kant’s “Copernican
Revolution” and those who refuse critical philosophy in favor of a
“classical” metaphysics that, in the words of Alain Badiou, “considers the
Kantian indictment of metaphysics…as null and void.” This conference will
consider the conflict between “critical” and “classical” or metaphysical
strains in contemporary thought. Has critical philosophy run its course,
as Badiou suggests? Or has Kant’s critical turn determined the horizon of
all future philosophical work? Or is there an alternative path?

We are interested in analyzing the contemporary division between thinkers
who prescribe a return to the pre-critical metaphysics of, for example,
Spinoza, Leibniz, or Lucretius, and those who continue to take up various
trajectories of Kant's critical legacy. The former camp might include
Deleuze and Badiou as well as Negri and Althusser, while the latter might
include Adorno, Benjamin, Heidegger, and Derrida. We particularly wish to
encourage work that takes a stand on the conflict between the two camps,
as well as work that considers the implications of the conflict for the
arts and social sciences. The wide range of our inquiry includes
interrogations of the nature of critique, the fate of aesthetics, the
privilege accorded to immanence or transcendence, and the status of
materialism.

Suggested paper topics include (but are not limited to):

- transcendence and immanence
- Derrida and Deleuze
- negation and affirmation
- finite and infinite
- the rebirth of rationalism
- aesthetic ideologies
- quasi-, ultra-, immanent-transcendental
- the Althusserian legacy
- the one and the multiple
- the persistence of the dialectic
- the fate of aesthetics
- the return to Kant
- the future of the linguistic turn
- the question of critique
- futures of Marxism
- philosophies of experience
- univocity, equivocity
- the limits of representation
- the historical a priori
- the genesis of subjectivity
- the possibility of materialism
- affects, passions
- the role of the negative
- the new philosophy of science
- political ontology
- the return of nature philosophy
- radical Spinoza
- rhetoric and philosophy

The deadline for submission of 250-word paper abstracts for 20-minute 
presentations is February 1, 2008. Please include your name, e-mail
address, and phone number. Please email abstracts to [log in to unmask] 
Notices of acceptance will be sent no later than February 15, 2008. For
