WHAT'S THE MATTER
WITH THE FORM?

A Pluralistic Dialogue on the Notion of Form

About the Conference


The conference, to be held at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg, will take place from 17th to 18th November.  It will deal with a crucial issue in Western philosophy: the meaning of the notion of form and the closely related notion of matter. The relationship form-matter will be observed from the perspective of three specific fields of research. Part of the conference is devoted to the role of the concept of form in contemporary aesthetics. Then will social forms be examined in the Marxist tradition and in social theory. Finally, one panel will focus on how the concept of form has been criticised and reinterpreted through the debate on the digital.
