The Humanities Program and the Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society present
Prof Gregg Lambert
Dean's Professor of Humanities and Founding Director of the Humanities Center at Syracuse University, author of "Report to the Academy":
"The Leap in Thought"
What is the creation of real inter-disciplinary knowledge? How do philosophy, science, and art communicate with one another in an age of increasing specialization? What would a "paradigm shift" look like if the "normal science" of what we now call (in scare quotes) "Theory" has very much become a business of shifting paradigms? Professor Gregg Lambert, Dean's Professor of the Humanities and Founding Director of the Humanities Center at Syracuse University, will address these questions by tracing an original image of the "inter-disciplinary brain" through the philosophy of late French philosopher Gilles Deleuze.
