Baruch Spinoza


Beyond Spinoza invite proposals for 30 minute presentations which trace or explore the presence of Early Modern philosophical concepts in contemporary philosophy and psychoanalysic theory. These could include, but are not limited to:

Spinoza and French philosophy (Badiou, Deleuze), Spinoza and psychoanalysis (Freud, Lacan), Spinoza and politics (Balibar, Macherey), Spinoza and self-transformation (Foucault, Lacan), Spinoza and schizoanalysis (Guattari, Deleuze), Leibniz and French philosophy (Deleuze, Gueroult), Leibniz and contemporary art, Leibniz and maths.

Beyond Spinoza is a collective of London-based postgraduate students who wish to enrich and deepen their understanding and enjoyment of contemporary philosophy by exploring its historical and conceptual roots.

The series will run once a week, for three consecutive weeks, at Goldsmiths College in July 2011. Each session will comprise two 30 minute presentations followed by discussion and drinks. The series will be followed later in the year by a publication of revised papers.

Please submit proposals of around 300 words to on or before the 1st June 2011
