Notre Dame’s Contending Modernities project recently published a short article I wrote on “Provincializing Theodicy” which details some thoughts in dialogue and building with the work of Sylvia Wynter and is a preview of some of the work from my current book project, To Justify the World: Theodicy as Philosophical Form.

The new journal Oraxiom: A Journal of Non-Philosophy recently published a conversation between Laura Cull Ó Maoilearca, Katerina Kolozova, John Ó Maoilearca, and myself on François Laruelle’s The Last Humanity: The New Ecological Science (originally published in French in 2015 and coming out next month in an English translation I completed for Bloomsbury Academic). Given that my first book was an attempt to think about nature in a way that brought together philosophy, theology, and scientific ecology, I was thankful for the opportunity to share what I think is powerful about Laruelle’s own engagement and where we need to continue to think more. I note that, while Laruelle is clearly concerned with racism in the book, that thinking is undetermined by not engaging more with anti-Blackness and the deracinating power of Black studies.
