ESCAPING THE POLITICAL: A conversation with Rupert Read

This is my third appearance on Toby Buckle's Political Philosophy Podcast. In this interview, we cover private language, essential contestability, and political ideologies. We also discuss if it is possible to escape political ideologies or the use of power: Can we carve out true friendships separate from the forms of oppression that surround us? Thanks once again to Toby for being an excellent interviewer! The full podcast can be accessed here.

WITTGENSTEIN, LANGUAGE, AND POWER: A conversation with Rupert Read

This week I was back on Toby Buckle's Political Philosophy Podcast. In this interview, we cover Wittgenstein’s life, his approach to philosophy, his value to us, and the metaphors of family resemblances, word games, and money. The full podcast can be accessed here.

Philosophy for Our Times Podcast, 'The Illusion of Sense' with Hilary Lawson, Rupert Read, and Ophelia Deroy

From bats to beetles, animals sense the world differently in order to survive. Yet we think seeing and feeling tell us how things really are. Might our senses be radically limited? Are science and logic routes to escape our sensory limitations, or is feeling the rain on our skin the closest we get to truth?

Cognitive neuroscientist Ophelia Deroy, philosopher and author of Philosophy for Life Rupert Read, and closure theorist Hilary Lawson confront the limits of perception.

Seeding a civilisation to succeed this one

I gave this talk at the Climate and Apocalypse conference on June 29, 2017. This is one of the more intense presentations I've given. In it I consider reasons why our society may well fail to address the ecological crises in time, and what this would mean for possible future societies.
