The Gorgias Nothings: Dickinson, Plato and the Philosophical Blues
Audio recording of a lecture given by Fred Moten on November 3, 2023 as part of the Dean's Lectura & Concert Series. The Dean's Office has proviced this description of the event: "We will conduct a paraphilological thought experiment in which we look for traces of Gorgias’ lost work, On Nature or the Non-Existent, in the folds of Emily Dickinson’s envelopes. Perhaps our findings will provide some occasion to celebrate and cultivate the mystical, poetical, and sophistical field that causes (so much trouble for) philosophy."
