Matthew T. Segall, PhD, works in the Office of the Provost and teaches online courses for the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program. He is the author of Physics of the World Soul: The Relevance of Alfred North Whitehead's Philosophy of Organism to Contemporary Scientific Cosmology (2016), The Re-Emergence of Schelling: Philosophy in a Time of Emergency (2014), and articles on a variety of topics including architecture, economics, ecology, psychedelics, philosophy of mind, transpersonal psychology, and religious studies.
He is currently preparing a course for the Spring 2018 semester called "Process and Difference in the Pluriverse" that will draw lessons from a diverse array of pragmatist and process philosophers (including William James, W.E.B. DuBois, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Weber, William Connolly, Catherine Keller, Isabelle Stengers, Bruno Latour, and Donna Haraway) to address the challenge of thinking and acting with creativity and compassion in an increasingly complex and pluralistic set of social and ecological contexts.
Denise has enjoyed the last two years of the Brownbag lunch series. This year, we're mixing things up! Our first guest, Matt Segall has been invited to be the interviewer for the upcoming conversations.
