Philosophy of Horror movie night - "Hereditary"
Date and Time
Philosophy Department Seminar Room
MacKinnon, Room 346
In this special session of Philosophy in the Dark, we explore ‘occulted knowledge’ – that knowledge which is obscured, hidden and (at times) infernal. Drawing on the film Hereditary’s invocation of the demon Paimon, we will explore three tasks:  the philosophical understanding of demonology (with aid from Eugene Thacker),  an appraisal of the tomes (e.g. The Lesser Keys of Solomon) where one might know of demons and  an ‘occulted epistemology’ of past, present and future – knowledge of all secret things.
