photos from the studio during yesterday's radio interview with The Philosopher's Zone

More info HERE in the last section "Conferences, appearances, talks."

I just finished listening to the raw recording of the interview and it sounds great.  Stephanie and I promote our forthcoming Animal Experience book through OHP, and there's alot of discussion about Latour, James, Whitehead, Hartshorne, and Peirce and how those philosophers can be used to think about non-human animals, agency, and the emotions.

There's even a name drop of "correlationism" and how a speculative naturalists' phenomenology can tackle it. Hint: it involves the universal nature of suffering, empathy, and allowing other agents (in this case non-human animals) to speak for themselves; to develop a truly ecological metaphysics and wider culture of empathy.
