Nature and Its Others. The Invention of a Political Force
Lecture, 24 Feb 2020, 19:30

The moderns have invented a ‘nature’ and made it one of their most important political institutions. The talk will revisit this very singular adventure through which a number of local inventions, gestures, and operations, namely within experimental systems, have given birth to a new political force.
