The After Nature Korean world tour continues

Interview with Corrington and Niemoczynski by Seoul's largest Ecumenical newspaper on ecstatic naturalism and speculative naturalism, soon to be published along with video clips and photos on their website. (See below.) - A huge amount of thanks is in order both to our host and translator, Iljoon P., as well as the interviewer who asked absolutely amazing questions. Very deep questions actually, over an hour long interview.

Also, there was another interview I did a week ago in the US with a smaller publication, more on that soon, but the essence of it was the spirit of speculative naturalism (versus other real or imaginary "movements" found elsewhere online) as speculative naturalism is found here represented on my blog of seven years, After Nature.

The rest of this week is devoted to two conferences, the largest of which is actually on Thursday, contrary perhaps to my prior report.

The After Nature Korean world tour continues!

After Nature Korean World Tour

If anyone is in Seoul, Korea I'll be delivering two talks Wednesday and Thursday at Yonsei University, or if you're an After Nature reader and want to meet, please feel free to send an email. The first talk is entitled "The Sorrow of Being" and the second is on bleak theology, the latter being a debate of some sort in front of what is expected to be a rather large audience. - Below is a view from downtown Seoul last evening. -

I have quite a few thoughts on Seoul but will save them for a future post. Let's just say a Nick Land assessment is in order. (Certainly different from Japan's vibe, that's for sure. My time at Kyoto University two years ago was incomparable to this. We're talking accelerationism and hyper-capitalism unleashed... and I don't think either Japan or Hong Kong could ever catch up.)
