92d Session of the Philosophical Foundations of Law and Finance

Dear all,

For the 92nd Session of the Philosophical Foundations of Law and Finance (Friday, Nov 18, 2011, 18:00 - 20:00, room 516, University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London) , we shall try to resurrect God. There is a lot of ungodly stuff written about the death of god (Nietzchean pysch-pop syphilitic anti-moralising cookbook style to the super-ego-erotic Lacanian matheo-consciousness), but I prefer the grand line of attack from Aristotle's pith-plint Metaphysics book XII through St Augustine, St Thomas, Cantor, Reimann, Weyl, Wigner--in other words, from the simple dimensionality of Euclid to the utterly compressed fractal (non-conformal) dimensionality of Poincare and Mandelbrot. God appears everywhere -- just look at Duns Scotus Eriguena and his fourfold argument of God and nature for formal proof. Kierkegaarde continuously tried to resurrect the Aristotelian god. But today with everyone hooked in instantaneous chatter, God is the subdermal stillness-in-the-absence. Today, we have God despite any text and God not for believers but for those who are incapable of believing. 

See Alfred North Whitehead:
