Marc Rolli: Another Philosopher has come to Turkey

with 2 comments

I’m pleased to report that the growing community of anglophone philosophers in Turkey has been joined by Marc Michael Rölli, who started work in the Department of Philosophy at Fatih University in Istanbul this semester.  Professor Rolli was previously at Darmstadt Technical University (Germany). He has been productive in the areas of Continental Philosophy (particularly Deleuze) and the Philosophy of Social Science (particularly Anthropology).  He looks like a valuable addition to the philosophy scene here, so  I look forward to seeing his future work, and his contributions to philosophical life in Turkey.

Publications (in English and German) include

‘The Story of Repetition’, Parallax 18(1), 2012

Kritik der anthropologischen Vernunft [Critique of Anthropological Reason), Matthes and Seitz, Berlin, 2011.

Philosophie and Nicht-Philosophie: Gilles Deleuze – Aktuelle Diskussionen [Philosophy and Non-Philosophy: Gilles Deleuze –

Contemporary Discussions], edited with Friedrich Balke, Transcript Verlag, 2011

‘Deleuze on Intensity Differentials and the Being of the Sensible’, Deleuze Studies 3, 2009

‘Micropolitical Associations’ (with Ralf Krause), book chapter in Deleuze and Politics, Edinburgh University Press, 2008.

    Marc: Welcome to Istanbul. I look forward to meeting you.
