Professor Steve Fuller presents his current playwriting project.
Philosophy as Dramaturgy
I have always believed that drama is the best medium for the development of thought, especially if the thinker wants to get others to participate in a line of reflection. In fact, as President of the Sociology and Social Policy division of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 2008-9, I staged two plays, one of which received much publicity. It involvedAbraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin (both born 12 February 1809) returning to a 2009 chat show to discuss what they make of our times. I am now writing a play – hopefully to be staged for Kant’s 300th birthday in 2024 – that has a young Kant visit Linnaeus and Swedenborg in Uppsala in 1759. Read abstract
