Jeff Gomez as special guest on philoscifiz episode 12: Arrival (2016)
Out now – the final episode of season two of philoscifiz, an on-screen sci-fi & philosophy podcast I present along with Dr Matthew J. Barnard (Lecturer in Philosophy, Manchester Metropolitan University).
And in this episode we all go on a collective journey toward first contact with aliens. Along the way we encounter Nietzsche’s love of fate and an ungrounding of mathematics as a universal language.
Yet the true ‘beauty of Arrival’ – for Jeff – is how Louise ‘understands something fundamental’, that ‘to know others is to perceive the world differently’, as a collective journey.
