MOREL, Phillipe

From Integrated Science to Integral Capitalism: The Epistemological Roots of the Present-Day Economy

Series:
Date: Friday 27 October 2006
Time: 00:00
Venue:
Running time: 84 mins
Phillipe Morel looks at the present-day economy using a number of little known but nonetheless essential epistemological assertions. The words of mathematicians, including those from previous centuries, shed light on the production of form in architecture, and on the economy in general. From this angle, we see that a contemporary, renewed epistemology enables us to grasp both the global and distinctive natures of a discipline such as architecture. To make a brief parallel, we could link the architectural analyses of Peter Eisenman with the polemical, urbanistic analyses of Rem Koolhaas. The challenge is to move beyond all opposition in an era that already achieved this and that seems, thanks to widespread computation, to have turned Carnaps Logical Structure of the World (1928) into a strictly positivist but nonetheless absolutely real standpoint. A tutor in History & Theory Studies at the AA, Phillipe Morel is co-founder of EZCT Architecture & Design Research and Associate Professor at the Ecole Nationale Sup
