Lecture (22th August, 2019, Tokyo): Urgent Talk 036: On “Technodiversity”

Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available

 

Originally from Hong Kong currently teaching in Germany, Hui Yuk is a philosopher who examines the natural world and the rapidly evolving technological landscape of our time by referring to Gilbert Simondon, Martin Heidegger, and Jean François Lyotard’s critique on modern technology, as well as traditional Chinese philosophy. His unique reflection on AI (artificial intelligence), cybernetics, and digital technology led him to gain international recognition as one of the foremost emerging thinkers of contemporary philosophy. Recently, he proposed the concept of “Cosmotechnics,” which aims to understand technology not merely as a functional tool or device, but in connection to the larger world view of cosmologies.
In this Urgent Talk, Hui Yuk delivers a presentation on technology and futurism by centering his presentation on the theory on technodiversity.
