MP3 of mine to follow soon. Here are Ed's comments. He was somewhat hostile, so it was a little hard to keep up with everything, but I managed to put most of his comments down in telegraph form.
Ed Cohen, Women's Studies, Rutgers
He's a member of Social Text collective
Latour: ecology as reasoning of how we live together
Meditation as well as healing
Hyper ness is a problem: I'm too fast, too hyper
Nietzsche's notion of rumination
Having to be a cow and not a modern person
Things take time
Stengers: cosmic idiot
Demanding that we slow down
Who are “we”? Cohen doesn't feel interpellated by the "we" in my talk
What about nonhumans? Or nonwesterners? I've read his blog and he never talks about them. (?)
Aboriginals protesting natural gas production vs. Morton on hyperobjects.
Songlines: what would hyperobjects mean to them? (They wouldn't care! Is his answer)
Multinaturalism as opposed to my “without-nature” (Latour)
I'm not taking account of nonwestern non-science, and I am taking account of Western science, therefore I am very bad.
Cohen has many issues with OOO, the most significant being, “So what? Don't we already know that about Heidegger? We don't need Graham Harman to tell us.”
Dalai Lama: the western opposition of subject and object has been greatly exaggerated
