Making Worlds with Crows: Philosophy in the Field


Thom van Dooren draws on his current research on people’s shifting relationships with crows around the world to outline some of the core questions and approaches of “field philosophy.” Doing philosophy from the field—in particular, in conversation with ethnographic research and the resources of the biological sciences—van Dooren argues that we might open up new questions about the how, what, and why of multispecies knowledge practices and ultimately new ethical approaches to the worlds we craft together.
