Do you like political philosophy? Do you like science fiction and fantasy? Do you like breaking down the artificial cultural and intellectual barriers between the two? Then we have a treat for you!
This episode is a totally novel collaboration between our show, PoliTreks (a podcast which combines Trekky Fandom with cultural and political analysis), Benjanun Sriduangkaew and J-Moufawad Paul (co-authors of Methods Devour Themselves).
DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK: "Methods Devour Themselves is a dialogue between fiction and non-fiction. Inspired by Quentin Meillassoux's Science Fiction and Extro-Science Fiction that was paired with an Isaac Asimov short story, this book examines the ways in which stories can provoke philosophical interventions and philosophical essays can provoke stories. Alternating between Benjanun Sriduangkaew's fiction and J. Moufawad-Paul's non-fiction, Methods Devour Themselves is an interstitial project that brings fiction and essay into a unique, avant-garde whole."
