Vattimo & Zabala on the New Graduate School

Vattimo and Zabala

Vattimo and Zabala

“In an age where schools, colleges, and universities are framed, that is, controlled by the dominant corporate paradigm, independent graduate schools have become necessary to defend thought’s freedom, strength and creativity. This new graduate school is not simply another institution where students can obtain MA and PhD’s under the guidance of distinguished academics and thinkers from all over the world, but also where these same intellectuals can teach independently of those cultural frames they contributed to overcome. As ‘hermeneutic communist,’ or better, anarchic interpreters striving to change the world, we are honored to be part of its faculty.”

Gianni Vattimo and Santiago Zabala
