Incomplete Nature by Terrence Deacon
Shamansun (Jeremy Johnson) recommended the following text on FB today, which looks quite interesting (I've added it to my list):
Evolving Dharma, by Jay Michaelson
An Inquiry into Modes of Existence, Bruno Latour (reading now)
Rejoicing: Or the Torments of Religious Speech, also by Latour -- and apparently a continuation of AIME, but as it relates to religious/spiritual rhetoric.
My Christmas gift (to myself), which I've added to my bedside stack:
The Bodhisattva's Brain: Buddhism Naturalized, by Owen Flanagan
The blurb reminds me of Batchelor's article "A secular Buddhism" in this post and following commentary.
I saw an ad today for an interesting-looking science fiction book (now on my to-read list):
The Abolition of Species, by Dietmar Dath
I love good sci-fi and this looks to be a good one. I'm especially interested in a new "ceramic form of postbiological life."
Which reminds me of this Star Trek episode featuring a silicon-based life form.
A new book on Deleuze's impact on theology: Iconoclastic Theology: Gilles Deleuze and the Secretion of Atheism.
The linked page contains a link to the first chapter from the book.
