Book Bash

To mark the publication of Giorgio Agamben’s What Is an Apparatus? and Other Essays (Stanford University Press), please join the translators David Kishik and Stefan Pedatella for a celebration of the work of one the world’s leading philosophers and radical thinkers. The three essays collected in this new book offer a succinct introduction to Agamben’s recent work through an investigation of Foucault's notion of “apparatus” (or dispositif), a meditation on the intimate link of philosophy to friendship, and a reflection on the singular relation with one’s own time that we call contemporariness. The evening will also include a sneak-peak reading from Agamben's forthcoming book, Nudity.

Bah, I wish I could come. Sadly, I can't get to the city on that day.

I just finished the new book, excellent job! Thanks for all the work, and for this wonderful blog.

Any chance that the sneak peak of nudity might be able to be accessed online some how?
