    Bernard Stiegler on Transgenerational Memory and the Dual Origin of the Human.Michael Haworth - 2016 - Theory, Culture and Society 33 (3):151-173.
    This article reconsiders Stiegler’s account of the emergence of the human species in light of research in the field of transgenerational epigenetics. Stiegler traces this emergence to the appearance of technical artefacts allowing for the intergenerational transmission of acquired memory that would otherwise die along with the organism. This is taken to constitute a rupture in the history of life. The argument that I develop critiques Stiegler’s account at two levels: On the empirical level I argue that emerging neo-Lamarckian developments (...)

    Telepathy and Intersubjectivity in Derrida, Husserl and Levinas.Michael Haworth - 2014 - Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology 45 (3):254-267.
    Taking as its jumping off point recent attempts in the sciences of the mind to facilitate direct brain-to-brain communication, this article considers the challenges such a development poses to the phenomenology of intersubjectivity. This is examined initially through recourse to Husserl's description of the encounter with the other in the Cartesian Meditations, Levinas’ rival account in Totality and Infinity, and Derrida's contribution to this dialogue in the essay ‘Violence and Metaphysics’. All three turn around the problem of how the externality (...)

    Automating Art: Gilbert Simondon and the Possibility of Independently Creative Machines.Michael Haworth - 2020 - Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology 7 (1):17-32.
    The modern concept of creativity as an attribute of human beings has, since its very beginnings in the 18th Century, routinely been defined in opposition to that of the programme. In Edward Young’s...

    Genius Is What Happens: Derrida and Kant on Genius, Rule-Following and the Event.Michael Haworth - 2014 - British Journal of Aesthetics 54 (3):323-337.
    This essay examines the concept of genius in the work of Jacques Derrida and Immanuel Kant and argues that, despite Derrida’s arguments to the contrary, there is significant space for convergence between the two accounts. This convergence is sought in the complex, paradoxical relationship between the invention of the new and the contextual conditions, or ‘rules’, from which any work of genius must depart but without which no work of genius would be possible. It is my argument that Kant evades (...)

  6. Thought Into Being: Finitude and Creation.Michael Haworth - unknown
    This thesis is a response to the increasingly widespread belief in the potential for technology and modern science to enable finite subjects to overcome the essential limitations constitutive of finitude and, hence, subjectivity. It investigates the truth and extent of such claims, taking as its focus quasi-miraculous technological developments in neuroscience, in particular Brain-Computer Interfacing systems and cognitive imaging technologies. The work poses the question of whether such emergent neurotechnologies signal a profound shift beyond receptivity and finitude by effectively bridging (...)
