Alberto Toscano: Metaphysics, Metamorphosis and Monetization @ Sophistry, Zagreb, 27-29 June, 2014

Talk at the conference "SOPHISTRY - The Powers of the False" at MaMa, Zagreb [June 27-29,2014] Our symposium will take up sophistry not only as a matter of historical concern but also contemporary contestation: as one way to think through not only the relation between the true and the false, but also the "ancient" and the "modern," not only the philosophical past but also the future of philosophy. Alberto Toscano is Reader in Critical Theory at the Department of Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London. He is the author of Fanaticism (2010), The Theatre of Production (2006) and the forthcoming Cartographies of the Absolute (co-authored with Jeff Kinkle). He has translated several works by Alain Badiou, Antonio Negri and others. He edits The Italian List for Seagull Books and is a member of the editorial board of the journal Historical Materialism.
