Inclinations #19: What Do Impossible Objects Do?
Tuesday May 5, 2015, 7:30PM, 2015
Or Gallery Berlin is pleased to present Tzuchien Tho in What Do Impossible Objects Do?, for our speaker series Inclinations, hosted by Patricia Reed.
Tzuchien Tho will present some elements of a new manuscript treating the problem of method in contemporary philosophy. The talk will focus on the historical evolution of mathematical structure especially with respect to “impossible” or problematic objects and trace some implications for the evolving gap between thing and representation inherent in philosophical work.
Tzuchien Tho is a fellow at the Institute for Research in the Humanities (Bucharest) and associated researcher at the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften. He has published and given presentations on problems concerning mathematical objectivity and method in the 17th and 20th century.
The presentation of work revolves around the posing of a question that is the thrust of a guest’s activities. It goes without saying that questions may not be answered, but are grappled with in their unresolvability. An inclination is the force of attraction to a question (without a straightforward response), yet also to each other, as a community who partakes in a common quest(ion).
