Daniel Chernilo is a professor of social and political thought at Loughborough University in the UK. Dr. Chernilo has a new book coming out in early 2017 called Debating Humanity. We discuss human nature, essentialism, intersectionality, and the relationship between philosophy and sociology. You can purchase Dr. Chernilo’s book here and here. Here is the blog post I referenced in the discussion. Apologies for the disparity in audio levels. I’m working with new equipment and haven’t used Skype for interviews before, so I’m still experimenting with my setup. You’ll catch a bit of my breathing here and there (sorry for that). Things should improve as I continue these interviews and settle into a good audio setup.
