Very enjoyable workshop on William E. Connolly’s A World of Becoming yesterday. One of the striking things was how different the various papers were, picking on lots of aspects of the book and taking them in a range of directions. My paper seemed to be fairly well received, though one of the other papers in my panel received most of the questions – this has happened to my paper enough times in the past.
Connolly made a few comments from the floor, but didn’t respond in detail to the papers. He gave a closing lecture which was the planned second chapter of his next book, on Nietzsche, Whitehead and becoming – though most of the Nietzsche material was cut for the presentation.
