The article to follow is a draft posted here for your review. As usual, I invite your comments and criticisms (Note that I have been continually updating the draft below in light of helpful feedback and my own ongoing reflection: the doctrine of eternal objects is a deep ocean, but hopefully this study at least [...]
Below are parts 1 and 2 of my dialogue with toxinologist and evolutionary philosopher Timothy Jackson. We discuss everything from the philosophy of science and evolutionary epistemology, to the social and cultural impact of evolution, to the full-blown evolutionary cosmologies of thinkers like Whitehead and Peirce. https://youtu.be/MjPl70-ZSLU https://youtu.be/9hTPjXvjqjA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsWD1vrUip0 Bruce Damer and I joined David Sloan Wilson on the Human Energy Project podcast for a conversation about the Hot Spring Abiogenesis Hypothesis and its cosmological implications. This was recorded late last year.

https://youtu.be/s7I5j2cteFQ My long-overdue conversation with Bernardo Kastrup is above. I am pleased with how this turned out. We mostly attempted to translate between our respective orientations, finding many overlaps despite differences of emphasis. I think important differences remain, though we'll have to iron those out together in the future. A few thoughts about what we [...]

Dia-logos with John Vervaeke: Emergence, Emanation, and Bernardo Kastrup's Idealism https://youtu.be/1RO5fnvgo4M

The macroscopic process is the transition from attained actuality to actuality in attainment; while the microscopic process is the conversion of conditions which are merely [...]
A new revised and expanded edition of my book Physics of the World-Soul: Whitehead's Adventure in Cosmology is now available in paperback and electronic versions.
Had a great chat with Marty yesterday on his podcast "Philosophy Chat." We covered a lot of territory... those interested in German Idealism, Naturphilosophie, and Process-Relational Philosophy will have plenty to chew on. https://www.youtube.com/embed/yfkuXMRDyvo
I'm teaching for Schumacher College again, this time online. This course focuses on two towering exemplars of the organic approach to science, the German poet and naturalist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) and the British mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947). The course will run via live video conference on Saturday mornings (PST) for [...]
Thanks to John Vervaeke for hosting me on his channel. It was a wonderful conversation. As you'll hear, we are planning to do a few trilogues soon with Jorge Ferrer and Evan Thompson. https://youtu.be/FHkIi1KZ_qk
