Open Lecture by Andrew Benjamin: 'Listening, Writing and the Founding of the Law: Notes on Exodus 32:19-20'

Moses listened to the word of God. And yet the registration of those words is writing; writing as that which can be understood as an-original mediation. The aim of this lecture will be to look in detail at the problem of immediacy and mediation and ask the question of the extent to which listening might be understood as a form of reading.
