Is the historical event described in Heidegger’s philosophy something we can endeavour to bring about, or will we have to wait for it to be handed down to us? Inscriptions, an international journal of contemporary thinking on art, philosophy, and psycho-analysis, invites contributions to our upcoming issue on Being and Event (vol. 5, no. 1).Read more about CfP Inscriptions 5, n1: Being and Event
This issue features texts that explore the form of the academic essay, with contributions from David Ritchie and Julio Alcántara. Poetics, in the ancient sense of a treatise on aesthetics, is a key component in essays by Gorica Orsholits and Adam Staley Groves, while María Paula Suárez and Shannon A.B. Perry question the role of art in political and personal processes. Avron Kulak reads Kierkegaard and Descartes to have us reconsider the distinction between reason and faith. Also: Timothy Deane-Freeman on inscription in Guattari and Niall Gildea on Derrida.
