Faculty Video: Night of Philosphy & Ideas 2019

For the third consecutive year, BISR faculty participated in the annual Night of Philosophy & Ideas, an all-night marathon of philosophical debate, performances, screenings, readings, and music co-presented by the Brooklyn Public Library and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. As we did last year, we recorded our faculty contributions–Suzanne Schneider on “Terrorism, Nihilism, and the Politics of the Present”; Ajay Singh Chaudhary on “The Long Now: Ecology and Time after the End of History”; and Rebecca Ariel Porte on “Hesperus as Phosphorus.” All three can be viewed below:
