6 p.m. Oxana Timofeeva, The Living Soul
Do humans and other animals really have souls? If so, how do their souls look like? What are they made of? Where does the living soul, anima, that animates the animal, comes from? Where is it located? Where is it located, and in what is it different, if different at all, from the body? Today, such questions might sound naive and obsolete. This talk, however, will demonstrate their relevance.
Oxana Timofeeva is an Associate Professor at the European University in St. Petersburg, a senior research fellow at the Institute of Philosophy of Russian Academy of Science (Moscow), a member of the artistic collective "Chto Delat?" ("What is to be done?"), a deputy editor of the journal "Stasis", and the author of books History of Animals (Jan van Eyck, 2012; Moscow, 2017; Bloomsbury, 2018), and Introduction to the Erotic Philosophy of Georges Bataille (Moscow, 2009).
The lecture will be in English.
