For anyone who’s interesting, here’s an audio file of my talk at Independent College in Dublin on Lacan and Posthumanism.  I never really get to the posthumanism talk, but much of my critique of ontotheology, transcendence, patriarchy, Oedipus, sovereignty, and phallocentrism can be found here (I think there’s a whole series of structural isomorphisms here).  This is also the groundwork for my defense of ontological anarchism or immanence.  Lacan’s graph of sexuation has been an obsession of my thought for over a decade now and really gets at the political stakes of everything I’m trying to do in machine-oriented ontology or onticology.  At any rate, I hope the talk makes some sense.  I did it extemporaneously without a written paper.
