Metaphysics (Mostly) & Critical Social Science

Here is draft of a lengthy interview, headed for publication in a volume edited by Tim Rutzou and Phil Gorski.  Discussion welcome!   There are some typos and whatnot.  I’ll update the link as I fix things.  Interview for Rutzou & Gorski, Jan 28, 2018

Meanwhile, I apologize for there having been yet another a major lull, here on the blog.  Most of the spring and a good bit of the summer of 2017 were taken up with work on the 1st annual meeting of the Critical Social Ontology Workshop [see our fb page or website for more information].  After that: a pit of academic service.  Hopefully I’m in a position now to resume posting more regularly.
