INVITATION TO SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATE IN MINUS THEATRE RESEARCH GROUP, AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

My workshops with Minus Theatre are moving to Tuesday 2-6pm in the Sir Paul Reeves Building at Auckland University of Technology, starting from this Tuesday, October 28. Over the next several months, we will be working towards further performances in many languages (Korean, Mandarin, Creole, Russian, English, etc.), including the languages of theatre and dance, cinema, the visual arts and music. You are invited to add your voice, your talents and your story to this exciting experiment in how to create work of diversity and change and life, of the individual, and of the group. Meet me at 1.50pm on Tuesday in Fitzroy Plaza (the red asterisk on the map below) (I’ll wear the hat in the snap below the map), or contact [email protected], to support or participate.
Best,
Simon Taylor

… though Nagel doesn’t write about art in “Mind and Cosmos,” the book’s widest implications involve art and how it helps us to understand the world. If Nagel is right, art itself would no longer be merely the scientist’s leisure-time fulfillment but would be (I think, correctly) recognized as a primary mode of coming to grips with the mental and moral essence of the universe. It would be a key source of the very definition of life. Aesthetics will be propelled to the forefront of philosophy as a crucial part of metaphysical biology, and so, the writing and practice of philosophy will come to look more like texts by Nietzsche, with their own built-in aesthetic and subjective components and emphases on historical and practical events. The very beauty of Nagel’s theory—its power to inspire imagination—counts in its favor.
