Avital Ronell


Survival Kit Episode #1

Season 1, Ep. 1

The first episode of Avital Ronell's survival kit for the anguished.

Philosopher and literary critic Avital Ronell expresses herself here on the nature of survival, on how philosophers and poets allowed us to open our "heart spaces" to survival.

Survival has been philosophically divided into ways of merely living on or having a relation to something that Derrida called "sur-vie", which are themes explored in this first edition of Avital's Survival Kit for the Anguished.
