Biological reality of the body and its implications.

The universal and the particular.

Episdoe #39 - Body Philosophy. Dichotomies & Meanings

My guest for the 39th episode is Eran Dorfman. He is a professor at the Department of Literature, Tel Aviv University, and a former Directeur of the program at the Collège International de Philosophie, Paris. He specializes in 20th century French Theory and Literature, Continental philosophy, phenomenology and psychoanalysis. He is the author of several books of which the latest is Double Trouble: The Doppelgänger from Romanticism to Postmodernism.

I met Eran in Freiburg contact festival. We found ourselves delving into a long conversation about body philosophy politics and more. We were both intrigue about our parallels - him being a professor for phylosophy who is interested in dance, me being a dancer who is interested in philosophy. I knew right away that I would invite him to the podcast to continue our conversation in this public format.

In our conversation we have talked about the potential meanings behind the phrase ‘being connected', we talked about the body mind split, about the biological reality of the body and its implications, about the tension between the universal and the particular, we talked about how to deal with dichotomies in thinking and much more.
