Rebecca Goldner, recent PhD from Villanova University, joined the Digital Dialogue for episode 63 on Touch in Aristotle. This was our first recorded Digital Dialogue using Google+ On Air, and we were able to stream it live during the discussion.
In the spring of 2013, Rebecca defended her dissertation at Villanova University entitled, Lived Flesh: Touch and Embodiment in Aristotle’s de Anima.
She also has an excellent article published on the topic in Epoché: A Journal in the History of Philosophy, entitled Touch and Flesh in Aristotle’s de Anima. It was a hearing of a version of this article at the Ancient Philosophy Society in 2010 and then a subsequent reading of it in Epoché that first brought Rebecca’s work to my attention. That paper informed my own forthcoming paper on touch in Aristotle, entitled On Touch and Life in the De Anima, a version of which I gave at the Collegium Phaenomenologicum in Italy in the summer of 2012.
Given these connections, we thought it only appropriate to continue our discussion of touch in Aristotle on the Digital Dialogue. In addition to the audio file, you can watch the conversation via YouTube, below:
