Public presentation Homo Modernus, with Denise Ferreira da Silva: ‘Examination of the conditions of raciality, the modes of its production and the effects of its signification in Homo Modernus has shown how Space and Time operate as onto-epistemological parameters. At the same time, this excavation among the fundaments of modern European thought indicates that the power of Space and Time depends on three metaphysical pillars: separability, determinability and sequentiality. At the end of this excavation, what really mattered was the impulse to look for alternative bases for thought.’
