Jon Roffe and George Vassilacopolous in conversation about the philosophical aphorism.
Jon Roffe teaches philosophy at the Melbourne School of Continental Philosophy. He is the author of Gilles Deleuze’sEmpiricism and Subjectivity (Edinburgh University Press, 2017), Abstract Market Theory(Palgrave, 2015) and Badiou’s Deleuze(Acumen 2012). .
Since completing his PhD on Hegel’s philosophical system, George Vassilacopoulos has developed research interests addressing the continuities and divergences in the thought of European philosophers including Hegel, Heidegger, Derrida, Husserl, Levinas and Castoriadis. The focus of this research is on the meaning and practice of communal gathering, history and otherness. George has also been working on the links between these thinkers and the history of Greek and Christian thought as well as on the role and nature of philosophical thinking in the 21st century. George also collaborates on research in the areas of critical race and whiteness theory and the history of Greek-Australian political activism, multiculturalism and foreigner discourses.
