For those local in the Philadelphia area...
Following upon last year's highly successful "Speculative Misanthropy" workshop, P.E.S.T. returns once again to discuss 21st-century philosophy in the P.E.S.T. organization's own unique and daring style: underground, off radar, and free from constraint. The best and brightest of young philosophers doing contemporary metaphysics in the States will discuss their views on a variety of topics within contemporary metaphysical philosophy. Seminar leaders include Karen Oyama, Leon Niemoczynski, and Jason Bell.
This year's workshop is a four hour evening event; hosted locally in Philadelphia, October 31st! Yes, that's music, philosophy, and Halloween!
Topics up for discussion include: the philosophy of Ray Brassier, Nick Land, and Francois Laruelle; Pete Wolfendale's latest book on OOP through Urbanomic; #Accelerate: The Accelerationist Reader; Ontological Suprematism; Dark Vitalism; Dark Fiction and Non-Philosophy/Non-Theology; Speculative and Ecstatic Naturalism; Bleak Theology; and Science Fiction and Philosophy. Plus you can expect a few surprise guests and live music for all!
If you're in the area come join the fun. Dancefloor, electronics, dark philosophy. That's firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. (Limited seating available.)
