Dissensus

The Debate for the Soul from a 15th C manuscript

Kim talks with Gina about Jacques Rancière’s concept of dissensus.

Gina refers to several major works of philosophy including:
Jacques Rancière’s Dissensus
Immanuel Kant’s Critique of Judgement
Jacques Derrida’s The Truth In Painting
Plato’s Republic
She also takes a small dig at Althusser, in the spirit of Rancière

Gina is a PhD candidate at NYU and an amazing teacher. She studies medieval literature and critical theory. She loves Theodor Adorno and really really hates the dialectic.

This week’s image is an illuminated miniature from a 15th C manuscript held by the British Museum, depicting the “Debate for the Soul.”
