Diet Soap Podcast #197: Hyperobjects and the New Neurotic Ecology
Professor and author Timothy Morton is the guest on this week’s podcast and we discuss his new book Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology after the End of the World.
Kim Stanley Robins (author of the Mars trilogy) blurbed Morton’s book as follows: In Hyperobjects, Timothy Morton brings to bear his deep knowledge of a wide array of subjects to propose a new way of looking at our situation, which might allow us to take action toward the future health of the biosphere. Crucially, the relations between Buddhism and science, nature and culture, are examined in the fusion of a single vision. The result is a great work of cognitive mapping, both exciting and useful.
