Financial markets play a profoundly significant and increasingly troubling role in global society, their operations and effects engaged with even the most mundane levels of everyday life. At the same time, theoretical reflections on what constitute these markets, let alone the market as such, remain scarce. And while this disparity was cast in a particularly dramatic light by the global financial crisis, it subsists in the most mundane of transactions. 

The aim of this course is to outline the key resources for redressing the gap between reality and theory, and to present a way to overcome it. The resources in question are the work of Elie Ayache (author of the first works on the philosophy of the market), the philosophical texts of Gilles Deleuze, Raymond Ruyer and Quentin Meillassoux, and work in the recent and contemporary social sciences. 

About the lecturer: Dr Jon Roffe is a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of New South Wales. He was the founding convenor of the Melbourne School of Continental Philosophy, and is an editor of Parrhesia: A Journal of Critical Philosophy. The co-editor of a number of volumes on twentieth-century French philosophy, Jon is also the author of Badiou’s Deleuze (Acumen 2012), Muttering for the Sake of Stars (surpllus, 2012), Abstract Market Theory (forthcoming, Palgrave), Gilles Deleuze’s Empiricism and Subjectivity (forthcoming, EUP), The Works of Gilles Deleuze (forthcoming, re-press), and the co-author of Lacan Deleuze Badiou (EUP 2014) with AJ Bartlett and Justin Clemens.

Lecture Dates: Six weekly evening lectures of two hours every Thursday starting on the 20th of August
Lecture Time: 18:30-19:30
Lecture Room: UNSW Australia, Square House Building, Room 109A
