Jean Cavaillès: A Necessary Becoming
To mark the publication of a new translation of Jean Cavaillès’s On Logic and the Theory of Science, Robin Mackay is joined by Knox Peden and Matt Hare to provide an introduction to Cavaillès's philosophical project for the uninitiated, and to examine what is at stake in On Logic’s confrontation with Kantianism, logicism, and Husserlian phenomenology. Among the many subjects covered in this wide-ranging conversation: optimism, extreme protestantism, and Spinozism; Heidegger and Cassirer’s Davos debate; mathematics as a necessary dynamism; the virtues and vices of phenomenology; philosophical style and the ethics of concision; foucault, archaeology, and the historical a priori; life and rational activity; abnegation in life and in thought; Cavaillès’s philosophical legacy and how reading his work ‘fundamentally changes our understanding of 20th-Century French philosophy’. Music: ‘23’ from Newtables by SND (SNDSE2)

Urbanomic PlaguePod Special: Guns Of Brixton
As the COVID era segues into something far more cursed, in this exclusive communiqué Anthony Nine drops a poetic-occultural dubplate mapping the fundamental lines of contemporary struggle in a world of politricksters. With a timely advocacy of the power and discipline of real magical practice against the insidious enchantments of ‘meme magic’ and the uncontrolled consequences of its tawdry cons, this impassioned reading touches on memory, the powers of bewilderment and misdirection, and our relation to life and death, past and future. Essential listening for survival in 21st Century Babylon. Anthony Nine is a writer and artist from the UK now based in Miami. His work explores intersecting themes of occultism, African Diaspora traditions, psychogeography, music and culture. The extended text version of 'Guns of Brixton' with additional content will be published in ‘Conjure Codex 4’ by Hadean Press this summer. He is the author of ‘Space Weather Report’, a colouring book account of the world of spirit, available from Revelore Press. His first novel, Dub Seance, a story of lived magic set in London, New Orleans and Miami, is forthcoming. He is also a contributor to Urbanomic’s book Audint—Unsound:Undead (2019). Follow Anthony Nine on Twitter @spaceweather9 With thanks to Allison Brice, Hewson Chen, and Davis White for technical help.
