Enactivism, Embodiment, and the Gorier Stuff with Marilyn Stendera


In this episode Pat speaks with Dr Marilyn Stendera, co-author (with Emily Hughes) of Heidegger’s Alternative History of Time (Routledge, 2024).

Dr Stendera’s work focuses mainly on the phenomenological tradition, especially its intersections with philosophy of cognition and mind. She is particularly interested in time, including its role in cognition, its relationship to power, and how it has been conceptualised in different philosophical traditions. She also likes thinking about biology, death, gender, horror and metaphilosophy.

They discuss the relationship between transhumanism and enactivism, ranging across organisational integrity, embodiment, and precarity.

Background notes and a transcript of this episode are also available on the Concept : Art website.

Concept : Art is produced on muwinina Country, lutruwita Tasmania. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
