On January 21st, Aschehoug will publish Språk og oppmerksomhet [Language and Attention] an essay on the value of language and attention after July 22nd. This is a reflection on the value of literature, and of certain kind of philosophy, and as such also a reflexion on the value of the humanities today.
On Thursday 25 October, at 6:00 p.m. I will give a lecture (in Norwegian) at the Norwegian Academy of Sciences, Drammensveien 78, Oslo. The (new) title of the talk is “Det vanskelige ved virkeligheten: om språk og oppmerksomhet i litteraturen og filosofien”.
I am delighted to be giving a paper and participating at Aschehoug’s summer seminar for their writers in Oslo on June 21. I am looking forward, very much, to learning more about the interests and concerns of writers and publishers in Norway today.
