Philosophy Queen: Avital Ronell
She has been called the most dangerous lady of the USA, a terrorist of the Ivory Tower but above all a groundbreaking philosopher, writer, teacher, and public figure whose international voice speaks for the broken and forgotten human subject in the postmodern world.
Avital Ronell is one of the most important philosophers of our time. She is not the usual philosopher. Her approach to thinking is playful, not simply academic: a less repressed-than-usual approach to life and society. She teaches. She writes. She is a performance artist and a trained boxer. In a series of intimate conversations with her closest friends we are introduced to some of her thoughts and fragments of her work. Featuring important thinkers and artists themselves such as Anne Dufourmantelle, Pierre Alferi, Suzanne Doppelt, Marguerite Derrida and Helénè Cixous.
