My inner skeptic has to be on full guard against my inner “completionist” that wants things ‘settled’. I just started reading it and it’s “pinging” me with all the right notes. It’s easy to get lulled into a religiosity and I know this writing will be difficult for me to stay critical with. After reading this lovely quote within the paper, I had to know more about the author so that I had a framework from which to gauge its possible direction flow, as it’s easy to get swept up in the currents of agreeable prose. Looking at his a recent publication, “Letter to Alan Turing”, Jan 2018, it is a letter of love from an adoring fan, about everything Turing didn’t get to see, good and not so good.. https://www.di.ens.fr/users/longo/files/Letter-to-Turing.pdf “Theoretical Principles for Biology” is his field and it draws in from theoretical physics, mathematics and I could find myself easily drawn in. So, I have to be careful as I read. This is posthumanities and it’s alluring.
