Horizons of Intuition - ways to think and act from within the stream of life
from Henri Bergson to Clarice Lispector
with Jan Verwoert, visiting professor and head of the Graduate School

Political depression hits hard when the horizon of action shrinks to zero, as we gasp at how absurdity trumps reality. What could action be born from? Bergson and Lispector say: the stream of life. As intuition zooms into microbiotic zones of rhythm and rhyme, spacing and timing, the world gets wider, and environmental agency becomes real.
