Research Interests for David Rambo

Research Interests: philosophy of technics, process cosmology, antihumanism, 20th-c. French rationalism and materialism, Marxism and real abstraction, contemporary literature, film, and video games

My dissertation attends to Bernard Stiegler's seminal contribution to a technological phenomenology, except that I substitute the rationalist materialisms of Marx, Whitehead, and several 20th-century French philosophers for Stiegler's Heideggerian canon. This intervention reconnects a philosophy of technics to broader philosophical questions concerning cosmology, the living-milieu relation, and transcendental structure, while also staging the empirical existence of technics in our present capitalist context. I have also written about and presented on contemporary finance, aesthetics, film, and video games.
