Sequence Press and Urbanomic host a lecture by Quentin Meillassoux exploring the thesis of his new book THE NUMBER AND THE SIREN: A DECIPHERMENT OF MALLARMÉ’S COUP DE DÉS. Translated from the French by Robin Mackay, The Number and the Siren is Quentin Meillassoux’s much anticipated second published book. A meticulous literary study, a detective story à la Edgar Allen Poe, a treasure hunt worthy of an adventure novel—such are the registers in which will be deciphered the hidden secrets of a poem like no other. Meillassoux continues his innovative philosophical interrogation of the concepts of chance, contingency, infinity and eternity . . .
