I just want to extend a special thank you to everyone who participated in our Philosophy and the Natural Sciences summer program, and helped make it, perhaps, the most well attended couple of months in the PCPN’s history. We had some great discussions, and I hope to see you all back this fall for Philosophy and Horror! Texts will likely include: H.P. Lovecraft, Dylan Trigg, Eugene Thacker, Graham Harman, Georges Canguilhem, Richard Kearney and many more. Anticipated start date for the fall program is October 5th, stay tuned for more information.
