Andrew Benjamin (UTS) - Potentially, Relationality and the Problem of Actualisation

This lecture forms part of a project to rethink the concerns of political theology. The lecture seeks to integrate that thinking into the development of a philosophy of life in which life is defined in relation to the law.  A defining element of the position advanced is that there has always been a tradition within both the history of philosophy and theology that has maintained the centrality of the political by retaining the primacy of law whilst not differentiating law and life. The important question is: can there be a thinking of the political that is not a concomitant thinking of the law?

Andrew Benjamin is currently Distinguished Professor of Architectural Theory at the University of Technology, Sydney and Anniversary Professor of Philosophy and the Humanities at Kingston University London. His recent publications include: Towards a Relational Ontology. Philosophy's Other Possibility. SUNY Press. (2015). Art's Philosophical Work. Rowman and Littlefield. (2015) and Virtue in Being.
