The greatest fear of the reigning order of things is the freedom of critical thinking and the ability to reproduce the conditions for critical thinking and creative action. Within the context of the contemporary university the freedom to think critically and differently has been largely compromised by the mode of production on which it rests. This Institute is devoted to strategically thinking through the implications of doing philosophy & art within the conditions of a different mode of production altogether — a mode of production created and reproduced by and through our community, The Global Center for Advanced Studies & GCAS College Dublin. This institute will take place on a farm in France, “Le Caillou”.
