UnderstandingSociety: The human sciences
"The phrase that was favored in nineteenth century German philosophy for these areas of research was "human sciences" (Geisteswissenschaften), the term used by thinkers like Dilthey and Windelband. And French thinkers like Bourdieu and Foucault used the synonym, "les sciences humaines.""

CONTEMPORARY PLURALISM: Lists vs Encounters (Laruelle, Stiegler, Latour) | AGENT SWARM
"Pluralism as a philosophy suggests new ways of of thought and of practice putting more emphasis on diversity and exchange, on interaction and transversality, than is customary for our dominant modes, which remain disappointingly monist. The aim is to favorise freer and more creative approaches by liberating us from relations of domination and authority. However, paradoxically enough, our contemporary pluralists seem to produce convergent or complementary analyses, but in practice remain quite solitary and compartmentalised. The question that we can ask is how to pass from a thought of plurality to a pluralist practice? how can we pluralise the pluralists?"

SPEP - Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy
SPEP is the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy, a professional organization devoted to supporting philosophy inspired by continental European traditions.
With a membership of over 2500 people, it is one of the largest American philosophical societies, and strives to encourage work not only in the philosophical traditions of phenomenology and existentialism, but also in all those areas commonly associated with ‘continental philosophy,’ such as animal studies, critical theory, cultural studies, deconstruction, environmental philosophy, feminism, German idealism, hermeneutics, philosophy of the Americas, post-colonialism, post-structuralism, psychoanalysis, queer theory and race theory.

Frames /sing
I am a novelist, (and a poet), who takes philosophy very seriously. That is to say, the study and examination of ideas, both in their genetic history, and in their contemporary creation, is central to my process of writing fiction and poem. The narrative, the description is exprimit out of this (to make a grammatical conflation). So these pages are a collection of my studies which began from out of a love of Deleuze and Guattari, I would say, though my debt to philosophy is much, much older.
