Objective This seminary aims to develop students's capacity to make of bibliographical searches in order to write an article in a specific subject
Content The course aims at comparing the problem of composabilité - which results from preKantian ontologies, from that of Leibnitz- with the doctrine of the transcendental schematism of Kant. It is a question of thinking about what prevents us from seeing the multiplicity which has not happened yet - in the universe and in the historic world has - as a phenomenon. The course looks for an answer to the question asked by Alain Badiou (has the dialectic closed branches?) in his comment on the Hegelian dialectic.
