Slavoj is going to lecture on Buddhism fairly shortly at Birkbeck. I wonder what he's going to say? My friend Marcus Boon wondered whether it was going to bring ecology without nature in line with Buddhism—which would be excellent. My less sanguine guess is that he's going to peel Buddhism away from neuroscience.
This has been a project within Buddhism and Buddhist studies in any case—Eleanor Rosch has been on it for some time, for instance. But I imagine that it will be coming from a more critical place: Buddhism is ideology, not science, or scientism-as-ideology.
Is anyone going, and would anyone like to record it for me? Or take notes?
