Willem de Kooning Academy: Leviathan: Plea for a Social Contract with our micro-organisms - October2014

Published on

I presented the 'Leviathan' lecture on October 14, 2014 at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. As part of a research project titled New Frontiers: "You Are What You Consume", addressing food, (micro-)biology and behaviour, initiated by designers Susana Camara Leret and Mike Thompson, I connected Thomas Hobbes' famous treatise 'Leviathan' (1651) as one of the earliest social contracts, to the necessity to develop a all-encompassing social contract with the huge population of beneficent microscopic organisms in the human body.

  4. 4. (…) And the voice which I heard from heaven spake to me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which stands upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
