PHILOSOPHY: Upping the Ex-ante
7th to 14th of August 2017

Once more we try to shake out some dust and find the best neglected pages to ponder in a shared manner and collaborative mode. This week makes a wager on the ability to philosophise through uncertainty, where the minutiae of self-abolition propels thought and initiates its wandering. Always a messy process: the accumulation of philosophical ‘interest’ seems to remain problematically individual. This muddle might be why a kind of neo-existentialism is so evidently on the rise. The spontaneous philosophy of philosophers—elaborated currencies—should be questioned, opening vectors of ludic exchanges. Dialogue finds itself occurring in ancient texts and while washing dishes.

The tension between self-abolition (as an ideal) and individual presentations creates an urgency to realise what a sustained thinking together can do. Collective philosophising requires more than a few dice rolls, oblique strategies, and parlour tricks to get us out from behind our desks, our thoughts from out of our heads: lest we forget that philosophy was once peripatetic.

This year we go sans-speaker, clearing the board. Things will be immanently shaped by those present, so bring something to do, something to speak through or to speak through you, something to think-with—collectively. Or not. There is no obligation to prepare anything ex-ante (in advance). The board will fill with freshly-minted proposals—philosophical, musical, mobile, poetic, filmic. To share one’s work is to test past and future collective memory as much as map the current terrain of thought: we can draw different lines in the dust.

Food will be handled through a combination of collective organisation and nominated helpers. The format will depend on the number of attendees, but we expect it to be between €10-15 per person per day on top of the stay per night.
PAF asks a room fee of €18 per night when staying for five nights or longer, €20 per night for short stays.
PAF membership is €12, valid for one year.
