Abstract

In this talk I provide a series of reflections on the emerging area of study known as ‘Performance Philosophy’. But rather than doing this by providing a definition of performance philosophy – or indeed, either of its constituent terms – I will explore what happens if we begin with a kind of performative contradiction; namely the hypothesis that: “Not knowing what performance philosophy is, is the only valid starting point from which to do it”. Starting from here I will go on to examine what might be at stake in the at once seemingly banal and potentially radical idea that ‘performance thinks’ - with attention and collaboration as two possible modes for this thought that does not merely apply existing philosophy but does philosophy, performs it, in new ways.
