Philosopher Levi Bryant will present a public lecture on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. inside the Edmon Low Library Reading Room, as part of the Arts and Humanities Lecture Series.

Bryant’s lecture, “Gravity and Power: An Introduction to Onto-Cartography”, draws from his forthcoming book, Onto-Cartographies: An Ontology of Machines and Media (Speculative Realism) (University of Edinburgh Press).  His popular blog, Larval Subjects, has received over three millions hits.  

Bearing an interest in the history of philosophy, Bryant wrote an influential work on Deleuze, entitled Difference and Givenness: Deleuze’s Transcendental Empiricism and the Ontology of Immanence (Topics in Historical Philosophy) (Northwestern University Press) in 2008.  He has also published pieces on Lacan, Badiou, and a variety of other thinkers.   

A professor of philosophy at Collin College, Bryant previously published The Democracy of Objects (Open Humanities Press) in 2011 and was a co-editor of The Speculative Turn: Continental Materialism and Realism.
