The Idea and Practice of Philosophy in Gilbert Simondon

Als Sofortdownload verfügbar Kostenlos

Gilbert Simondon is mainly known as a “philosopher of technology”. He certainly is, but this conventional categorization, centered on the supposed object of his philosophy, is often not helpful in grasping the true originality of Simondon’s approach to and understanding of philosophy and its history. Beyond keywords such as “technique” and “technology”, which serve as common thread for the abundant literature on Simondon, the aim of this collection is to scrutinize the idea and practice of philosophy in the work of Simondon. For this purpose, Simondon’s peculiar way of philosophizing is examined (part 1) in order to better de­termine its true objects (part 2), before some of its ethical and political effects and issues are reconsidered (part 3).
