Description

Simondon was an important philosopher of technology, influencing Deleuze, Latour, Stiegler, and Laruelle, among others; within recent years there has emerged a lot of secondary literature on Simondon. In his work, he significantly departs from an idea of the 'individual' as a starting point; and is more interested in the process of individuation. He also departs from the Aristotelian division of form and matter ('hylomorphism') to posit 'matter' as an active agent in processes of formation. I think as we are all working with technology in some way, he may provide us with a way to think technology differently.
