Later this month, we’ll be hosting a new book event here at AUFS on Anthony Paul Smith’s A Non-Philosophical Theory of Nature: Ecologies of Thought (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013). I’m guessing that most readers of the blog already have some cursory familiarity with Anthony’s work. For those who don’t, I’d remind them that there’s a handy link to his c.v. above. If you’d like to snag a copy of the book before the event begins, it’s available at Amazon. For those who will still be saving up funds even after the event begins, there is a short preview available via Google Books. You may also want to read through the book preview that Anthony published last summer, at the Political Theology blog. We have an exciting list of contributors who’ll be commenting on the book: some who’ve already posted here at AUFS, some who have not, some who’ll likely be focusing more on Anthony’s ecological criticism, some who’ll be more interested in his use of Laurelle. We’re looking forward to a rich conversation. I’m posting the calendar below. We’ll basically be publishing a new piece every couple of days from late March until mid-April. Anthony, himself, will respond as much as time permits:
March 25th: I will do an introductory post
March 27th: Liam Heneghan
March 29th: Katerina Kolozova
March 31st: Marika Rose
April 2nd: James Stanescu
April 5th: Dan Barber
April 8th: Basit Iqbal
April 10th: Alex Dubilet
April 12th: Adam Kotsko
April 14th: Joshua Ramey
In the meantime, perhaps readers will want to leave comments and let us know about questions you might have for Anthony before the event begins, elements you’re hoping we’ll address, etc…

Yay! Guess I’m going to actually have to read this now–excited to follow along!
The link to Adam’s bio is amazing.
Funny to imagine somebody following the link and going,
“Oh, THAT guy?”
