Episode #09: The Event

Hello Buddies! It has been a while… Sorry about that. We were well and truly defeated by The Fold. But rather than abandon our reading completely, we decided to branch out and try and make sense of one concept at the heart of the book. Lucky for us, it is a concept that remains at the heart of Deleuze’s thought until his death: “the event”.

In this episode, we talk about Alice in Wonderland, Charles Dickens, Stoicism, the life of philosophy, Deleuze’s death, and we also announced what’s next for the podcast in 2022…

For those that don’t already know, we will be partnering up with the recently relaunched Zer0 Books YouTube channel to present The K-Files, a deep-dive into the work of Mark Fisher. You can still find us here and listen to us elsewhere, but make sure to give Zer0 a sub as that channel will be getting first dibs on our YouTube videos from now on.

For now, you can listen below or, alternatively, find us on Spotify, iTunes, Podbean and YouTube.

If you like to read along with us, our discussion is based on “What is an Event?” from Deleuze’s book The Fold; various chapters of Logic of Sense, particularly the “First Series on Paradoxes of Pure Becoming” and the “Twenty-First Series of the Event”; and the essay “Immanence: A Life” from Pure Immanence.

You can find links to a few other things discussed and drawn upon below:
