CPCT: Eric Santner — Canine-ical Theory: On Kafka’s ‘Researches of a Dog’
The Centre for Philosophy and Critical Thought cordially invites you to its 2020-21 lecture series on "Critiquing Violence Today."

In the paper I will present a reading of Kafka’s story about a dog’s effort to develop a new science. I will argue that this science has not only much in common with Freud’s innovation but also that it shares a great deal with what Foucault was after in his engagement with the Cynics, the stray dogs of philosophy.

Eric L. Santner is the Philip and Ida Romber Distinguished Service Professor of Modern Germanic Studies. He is the author of a number of books that explore the boundary zones between philosophy, literature, and psychoanalysis.
