Avital Ronell - Conference "The Experience of Stupidity"

CREM - Club des Résidents Étrangers de Monaco

Le Mirabeau, 1 Avenue Princesse Grace Monaco 98000

The Experience of Stupidity Essentially linked to the philosophical primal scene of stupor, stupidity also points to what has been historically inappropriable, as when Hannah Arendt considers Eichmann in terms of not only the banality but also the stupidity of evil. The political and social implications of stupidity have been articulated by Marx, Nietzsche, Deleuze, Nancy and Derrida, among others. Urgent yet recalcitrant, stupidity provokes a crisis in our understanding of politics, ethics, and psychoanalysis. The dilemma posed by the limited subject involves national identity, masochism and sexual politics, as well as the relation of poetic utterance to the stammer in which it originates. Lecture given by AVITAL RONELL : University Professor of the Humanities and Professor of German, Comparative Literature, and English at New York University. Avital Ronell also holds the Jacques Derrida Chair and is Professor of Philosophy at The European Graduate School / EGS. Presented by the Founding Members of the Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco : JOSEPH COHEN, School of Philosophy, University College Dublin and RAPHAEL ZAGURY-ORLY, Sciences po - Paris.
