Thursday, November 26th at Arhiiv, all are welcome to attend the third session of Semiosalong 2015, the semiotics of death. This week philosopher Francesco Orsi will talk to us about sex, death and perversion.
We are all quite familiar with so-called sexual perversions, whether thanks to literary, audiovisual, anthropological sources or on first-hand experience. But what is a necrological perversion, i.e. a perverted attitude towards death? Are the two perversions related, and how? And, finally, should we perhaps reject all such talk as based on some misconception? In this Semiosalong I will provide a tentative philosophical roadmap to approach these questions.
