Architecture of Transindividuation

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


According to the philosopher of technology Gilbert Simondon, the concept of ‘trans-individuation’ cannot be grasped based on the fully individuated ‘I’ or the inter-individuated ‘We’. Rather, it designates the process of co-individuation within a pre-individuated milieu where both the ‘I’ and the ‘We’ are mutually determined. As his disciple Bernard Stiegler surmised, transindividuation is thus key to understanding all social transformation and a way of addressing education since the knowledge of individuation is the individuation of knowledge. ‘Architecture of Transindividuation’ will revisit the lesson of Leibniz’s Monadology that ties sense to sensibility and matter to manner.
