TSV Episode 3: Live from San Francisco Launch Event by The Side View published on 2018-10-21T20:56:50Z What you’re about to hear is a live episode of the podcast that we recorded on October 4 in San Francisco. This event coincided with the launch of The Side View website and it gave me a chance to describe the TSV vision in front of a few friends and colleagues. In the first 30 or 40 minutes of the episode, I take a deeper dive into some of the philosophical influences that went into creating The Side View. I talk about the French philosopher Pierre Hadot and his conception of philosophy as a mode of existential training or exercise, I get into a little bit of phenomenology through the work of Francisco Varela, Evan Thompson, and Dan Zahavi, and I talk about the role of media ecology and affordance environments in The Side View’s general philosophy. As I mention at the start of the talk, you can also find a shorter four-minute version of these ideas on the About page of our website, but if you want the full back story on TSV and its inspirations, this episode is a great place to start. As always, feel free to drop us a line if these lines of thought spark any new questions or ideas for you. I hope you enjoy the episode.
