LESLEY - Definition and synonyms of Lesley in the German dictionary
The aim of the Versus Laboratory project, started in , is to explore how philosophical concepts are produced at the points of adversity and tension with political, aesthetical and scientific practices; the idea is to approach philosophy not as a regulative practice that reflects upon other practices defining their fields of action, but as a battlefield whose interiority is fed by the dissensual relations that it maintains with them.
Versus Laboratory has organized several conferences and seminars. Currently, together with Ozren Pupovac and Tzuchien Tho, Bruno Besana is leading a seminar — entitled Prolegomena to the Void — on the history of the concept of the void from early atomism to Hellenistic philosophy. The seminar will continue in by investigating the changes that the concept of the void undergoes in XVII century science and philosophy. Bruno Besana is also currently working on two short books projects, the first on Gilles Deleuze's reading of Greek Stoicism, the second on some contemporary attempts to give a formal reading of the concept of the subject.

LESC, Book description: The volume gathers seventeen student perspectives on contemporary European liberal education. Researchers and journalists who cover liberal education will hopefully find students' insider perspectives valuable for their work. The accounts also offer inspiration and caveats to administrators, faculty, and sponsors currently engaged in liberal education initiatives or considering to do so in the future.
Last but not least, this is a book for students of the liberal arts. Prospective students will get a better idea of what to expect, current ones may find that others share some of their joys and struggles, and former ones can reflect on a formative phase in their lives. Based on a selection of papers presented at a conference in September in Amsterdam, the volume brings together faculty, university leaders, and students from both sides of the Atlantic to reflect on the recent developments in Europe with regard to higher education in the liberal arts and sciences.
In the aftermath of the Bologna process, Europe is currently witnessing a proliferation of liberal arts and sciences colleges and broad bachelor degrees, and the contributors discuss the way in which the liberal arts tradition takes shape or should take shape in European institutions, focusing on teaching methods, core texts, and personal experiences with various curricula. The essay authored by Atanassow and Kretz, titled "Thinkeries Ancient and Modern: Aristophanes and Democracy's Challenges for Liberal Arts Education," revisits Aristophanes' The Clouds and its democratic context to argue that the play is equally critical of Socratic education as it is of democracy's narrowly utilitarian approach to learning.
The tension between these two critical directions, the authors contend, is at the heart of the play. Atanassow and Kretz move on to discuss that Aristophanes' challenge merits to be taken seriously by defenders of liberal education today. Looking at how Bard College Berlin responded to that challenge, they conclude that, if it is to be useful for modern democracy, liberal education needs to address the heterogeneity of values, and that a core-text based curriculum is uniquely fit to do so.
Geoff Lehman's contribution, "Bruegel's Via Crucis: Visual Experience and the Problem of Interpretation," is published in a section which addresses how specific core texts promote the goals of liberal arts and sciences education.

Starting from a close reading of the Via Crucis, Lehman argues that sustained engagement with a single work of art over the course of one or several class sessions in a seminar, or even as the basis for an entire course, poses similar challenges and has a similar pedagogical value as the close reading of texts. The multiple vantage points depicted in the Via Crucis not only relate to one other in a measurable, geometric way, they also indicate a diverse but coordinated range of bodily experiences, of states of attention and of interpretive horizons.
Lehman suggests that through this perspectival structure of diverse but commensurable viewpoints, the painting articulates an interpretive problem and simultaneously encourages a type of engagement that are both highly relevant for the values of a liberal arts education. When faced with a question, I am able to relate it to greater themes and have these influence how I come up with an answer.
