Strange Apprenticeship: Experiences as Students and Mentors in Philosophy
Show Notes

In this episode, we close out our set of engagements on pedagogy and the contemporary student experience. This time, we are joined by Vernon Cisney, a professor and the author and editor of several books on Deleuze, Derrida, Foucault, and others, and his student, Ryder. Of course, each of them provides an account of the various encounters that led them to philosophical work – but this discussion remains quite broad. We cross everything from the lingering importance of existential phenomenology in contemporary theory, the undercommons, technocracy, institutionalized ableism, and even manage to discuss Jim Morrison’s connection to Nietzscheanism. Many paths are tracked out, we hope a few of them get you thinking alongside us!
