Description

Philosophy and the Adventure of the Virtual considers these questions and many others in this lucid and imaginatively argued volume of essays, at the heart of which lies a philosophy of the virtual. The notion of the virtual has assumed a remarkable level of importance in recent years with the development of new technologies and the emergence of the Internet. Yet its precise ontological status and the range of its application to time and memory remain unclear and relatively unexplored. Keith Ansell Pearson brings the virtual to centre stage and argues its importance for re-thinking the central philosophical questions. Philosophy and the Adventure of the Virtual examines the limits of continuity, explores relativity, and offers a concept of creative evolution. Staging a series of encounters between philosophers as diverse as Bergson, Kant, Nietzsche, Proust, Russell, Dennett and Badiou, the book provides some of the most insightful readings of Bergson and will be of interest to philosophers across the analytic and continental divide and to anyone open to the possibilities of thinking.
