In November 2015 I had the good fortune to spend an afternoon with Daniel Ross.
We recorded the conversation as an interview, and I am delighted to publish the transcript of it here.
I wanted to know more about the concrete processes involved in translating Stiegler’s work in English, and whether translation could be understood as a practice of moving philosophical ideas into non-philosophical or non-academic contexts.
I also wanted to explore whether the digital can be translated differently to its current configuration within neoliberal capitalism.
I hope the interview will be useful to scholars who engage with Stiegler’s thinking.
Thanks to Dan for sharing his time and intimate knowledge of Stiegler’s work with me.
